Adding to the sphere of UAJK's operation and in view of the educational needs of the inhabitants of the Jehlum Valley, Jhelum Valley Campus has been established on August 01, 2015 at Hattian Bala. The campus has been initially housed in the building of Boys Inter College Hattian Bala along the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad Highway. In the first phase, three undergraduate degree programs have been launched in the disciplines of English, Education and Computer Sciences.
The cultural norms of the area and lack of resources limit the higher education opportunities for the youth especially females who are unable to join higher education institutions in big cities. The university campus at Jhelum Valley is providing the higher education facilities to the youth at their doorsteps and enables them to take part in national development.
