NWFP and the University Grants Commission (Now Higher Education Commission) in
1995. Two years later, in 1997, the NWFP Provincial Assembly passed Hazara University
Act in 1997 and Lt. Gen. (R) Syed Iftikhar Hussain Shah Governor NWFP took the
bold step of establishing Hazara University in the Neuropsychiatry Hospital, Dhodial,
Mansehra, in 2002.
The campus of Hazara University is situated 14 kilometres to the north of Mansehra
town on the right side of Karakuram Highway in a serene, peaceful, rural, pollution
free environment. The patches of the green pines across the sprawling campus enhanced
its natural location and accentuate the harmonious calm of its location. The vast
plain of Pakhal with its agricultural wealth irrigated by the River Siran and
tea gardens surround the University. Towards the northeast the hills are covered
with the dense forest and in the background far beyond the lofty peaks of the
snow-covered mountains of Kaghan Valley add to its panoramic attraction. On the
western, southern and the eastern sides the rolling ranges of the hills offer
the captivating scene.
The gentle and the fresh wind blowing across the campus waft an invigorating freshness
so conducive for learning environment.Hazara University with its immaculate natural
surrounding appears to have a far superior location with a formative influence,
which serves as the educator of senses and mind alike. The most famous and attractive
summer resorts of Kaghan Valley, Galliyat and Siran Valley with fascinating mountains
and hills are at a convenient distance of a few hours drive from the University
Campus, linked with wide metal-roads. The transport facilities to these places
