North South University – be a Global Leader

NSU Admission going on for Spring 2018

North South University (NSU), the first private university in Bangladesh, was established in 1992 by the  Foundation for Promotion of Education and Research (FPER) – a charitable, non-profit, non-commercial and non-political organization. The FPER later was renamed as the NSU Foundation and is presently called the North South Foundation. The Foundation is comprised of a group of eminent industrialists, prominent patrons of education, notable philanthropists, widely experienced academics and senior civil servants of the country. In the early 1990s, they had a dream to set up a world-class university as a center of excellence in higher education in the private sector. Their dedication, tireless efforts, and hard work paved the way for approval of the establishment of NSU.
The foundation of NSU permanent campus at Bashundhara was laid in 2003. The construction of the campus superstructures was expedited and completed in early Summer 2009 and the university shifted to its spacious new campus. Founded on 5.5 acres of beautifully landscaped area, this impressive state-of-the art campus with modern academic amenities and facilities of a world class university stands out as an extraordinary architectural landmark of Dhaka. The campus is designed to serve at least 22,000 students.
The 1.2 million sq. ft. floor space contains more than 100 class rooms, lecture theatres and exam halls equipped with latest teaching aids such as multimedia & computer terminal. It has IP (Internet Protocol) Telephone connectivity, WiFi access across campus, fully automated library, 35 administrative offices and 391 faculty offices; 8 Pharmacy and 9 Life Sciences-Biotechnology, Microbiology & Biochemistry- labs, 17 computer labs with around 1850 PCs, most of them with internet facilities. Servers include HP-UX System, Sun Solaris, IBM and DELL.
There are 1850 computers in 17 computer labs for the use of the students, the faculty members and the office staff, most of which are provided with Internet facilities. Wireless connectivity ensures fast and hassle-free excursions into cyber space. An ultra-modern state of the art Auditorium with 1100 sitting capacity is nearing completion. NSU campus has been designed and built to meet the needs of a twenty-first century academic environment.


North South University will be and remain a center of excellence in higher education. It will gain recognition, nationally and globally and will attract students, faculty, and staff from all parts of the world.
