NUJS Campus

Introduction

NUJS campus is located in the Salt Lake city of Kolkata overlooking the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass. The campus is well connected to the railway stations in Kolkata, the Kolkata airport and other well known destinations in Kolkata such as Park Street and Victoria Memorial. The NUJS campus is spread over an area of five acres of land comprising of an academic block, the halls of residence and a few flats for the faculties. The campus also has a guest house and a gymnasium for the students and the staff and faculties of NUJS. The latest addition to the NUJS infrastructure is its own auditorium. NUJS has built its own auditorium, on campus, with all modern facilities. The last convocation of NUJS was held in the new auditorium in February 2009.

The academic block of the campus has the NUJS library; two fully air conditioned conference rooms; two huge lecture theatres; offices of the Vice Chancellor and the Registrar; offices of the faculty members and staff; LL.B and LL.M classrooms; and a canteen. NUJS provides several facilities to its students and faculties and is continuously striving to improve upon many of the existing facilities and add new facilities. NUJS students have access to computer and internet services in the library along with photocopying and printing services. Students and faculties have access to major legal databases such as Heinonline, Westlaw, Lexis Nexis, Manupatra and other databases. The University is working towards getting other databases as well to boost its research infrastructure.

Each faculty member of NUJS has an independent desk/work station, access to a personal computer/laptop and internet facilities in their respective offices. The faculty members also have adequate storage space and access to other desk services such as printing and intercom services in their offices. These facilities would get a major boost once the entire networking of the campus is completed, a process which is already underway with the help of ERNET.
