Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gorakhpur University (Hindi: दीन दयाल उपाध्याय गोरखपुर विश्वविद्यालय) or simply Gorakhpur University (Hindi: गोरखपुर विश्वविद्यालय) is located in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh. The University of Gorakhpur is a teaching and residential-cum-affiliating University. It is situated at a distance of about 2 kilometers form the downtown to the east and almost walking distance from railway station to the south.Its one of the premier state universities,often known for its excellent way of organizing and conducting various state level entrance examinations.
Although the idea of residential University at Gorakhpur was first mooted by C. J. Chako, the then Principal of St. Andrews College, then under Agra University, who initiated post-graduate and undergraduate science teaching in his college, the idea got crystallized and took concrete shape by the untiring efforts of S. N. M.Tripathi. The proposal was accepted in principle by the first Chief Minister of U.P., Gobind Ballabh Pant, but it was only in 1956 that the University came into existence by an act passed by the U.P. Legislature. It actually started functioning since 1 September 1957, when the faculties of Arts, Commerce, Law and Education were started. In the following year, 1958, the faculty of science came into being. Faculties of Engineering, Medicine and Agriculture came into existence in later years. Mahant Digvijay Nath also made valuable contribution in the formation of the University.

In the beginning, research facilities in the field of molecular spectroscopy and the luminescence were developed and a number beginning in the field of semiconductor devices, polymer studies and theoretical studies in the field of exact solutions of Einstein field equations were also carried out. With growing numbers of teaching staff, studies in the field of crystal structure using X-ray techniques, investigations in the field of liquid crystals and biomolecules, experimental studies in solar physics and categorization of stars, studies of stellar matter particularly black holes and galactic clusters were undertaken. A strong in the field of supersonic conductors, dielectric polarization, absorption and dispersion studies and rare earth oxides were developed in the mid 1970s. Studies in the field of thin-film solar energy conversion devices, organic semiconductors and currently multilayer and nanostructure materials and devices have been developed.
A group in biophysics is studying transcription in DNA molecules and junction of these molecules. This group is also carrying out conformal mapping of biomolecules using X-ray techniques and NMR investigations. Another group in the field of Particle Physics is also active and is engaged in collaborative programme with CERN, Germany. Most of the faculty members after having their training in the country have worked in renowned research laboratories and centres of theoretical studies abroad.
Department of Mathematics & Statistics
As of 2011 Remy Denis, president of the All India Catholic Union, was a professor in the Department of Mathematics. Research is being done in the fields of Theory of Relativity, Differential Geometry, Fluid Dynamics, Special Functions, Summability Theory, Functional Analysis, Differentiable Manifolds, Number Theory, and Graph Theory and in Statistics, Bayesian inference, Life Testing, Reliability Theory Demography, etc. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics has made great strides.
Department of Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry was established in 1958 with late Prof. S.C. Tripathi as its founder member and Prof. Mehrotra (April 1958 to July 1962) as its first head.
Prof. R.P.Rastogi was appointed Professor & Head of the Chemistry Department in August 1962. He continued to be its Head until 1985, when he was appointed Vice - Chancellor, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. Under Prof. Rastogi, Department saw tremendous growth in chemical research and education activity and earned international fame in various areas including: Solid State Processes and Rocket Propulsion, Thermodynamics of Mixtures, Thermodynamics of Irreversible Processes, Non-linear Dynamics just to name a few. Chemistry Department is still very active in chemical research and education to continue its tradition.
Graduates from Chemistry Department are traditionally well respected and serving nationally and internationally at various top and responsible positions.
