JGU lies on a picturesque modern campus infused with opportunities for peer interaction and community engagement. The campus was designed by the award-winning French architect, Mr. Stephane Paumier, of S.P.A. Design. As a greenfield project with no built surroundings, the design is based on a very rigorous geometrical framework of ‘traces regulateurs’ of squares and golden rectangles, dear to European as well as Indian classical architecture.
The ceneer of the 80-acre JGU campus is occupied by the Academic Block. The entire building is lifted off the ground on pilotis to offer a continuous shaded park below the structures. It is a combination of flexible spaces like classrooms, seminar rooms, faculty offices, performing arts academy, library, dining halls and kitchens. Beside the Academic Block are the students’ housing complexes made of pavilions in exposed RCC precast structure.
The faculty housing is a line of ‘immeubles villas’, dear to the pioneer of modern architecture Le Corbusier, forming the visual boundary of the campus. All the buildings come together around a network of gardens and parks in complete harmony with nature. Lawns and gardens cover more than half of campus area. The whole campus, including residential spaces, is Wi-Fi-enabled.
JGU’s Academic Block is the centre of all academic activity on the campus. It houses state-of-the-art smart classrooms, performing arts academy, faculty and staff offices, the Global Library, reading rooms, moot court, studios, conference rooms, recreational areas and the faculty lounge.
JGU’s academic infrastructure reflects the integration of and adaptability to technology in enabling student-centric teaching and learning. Smart classrooms are equipped with screen projectors, internet access, single-desk power outlets and flat screens for presentations. JGU has equipped the classrooms on campus with speaker tracking cameras to ensure a better hybrid teaching-learning experience, in case there is any need in future.
Since its inception, JGU has aspired to become a leading global academic and knowledge hub. Central to this is the provision for modern and cutting-edge infrastructure and technology to host conferences, seminars, workshops, training and capacity-building programmes, and other academic as well as cultural events.
