The Department of Youth Welfare is mainly targeted towards organizing cultural programs and developing the personality of these students.

Health Center: 

The health center of this university was set up in the year 1962 and is quite efficient and well equipped. This health center was built in the University Campus to provide health care facilities to the students.

Reading Center: 

A peacefuo place to read and do your homework is very vital for education! I have always loved reading centers as they are peaceful, well- equipped and just what one needs to buck up for an examination. The Gujarat university has a Reading Center of its own too where students can come and read the books they want to. This reading center was inaugurated by Honourable Chief Minister Late Shri Babubhai J. Patel in the year 1977.  This reading center is adjacent to the central library of the university. With the capacity of providing reading space for over 400 students, this is one real unique feature of the university!

Sports Complex: 

Education is never complete without the right mix of sports with books! Some of the biggest sports stars of India started it quite young from their schooling days hence, it's very vital that a Univeristy has good sports facilities too. This helps people recognize the hidden talents inside some of the students. The Gujarat University has its own huge sports complex located inside the campus. This sports campus has all kinds of sporting facilities like Tennis, Hockey, Gymnastics, Football, Cricket, etc.

Internet Access Center: 

What's the fun when you don't have free wifi? ;) It's a fast developing world where Internet is playing a major role. Hence, an Internet center is vital too.  The Gujarat university has an Internet Access Center of its own which provides both the students and the faculty with a high speed and breeze-like broadband connection!
