The Islamia University of Bahawalpur (IUB), colloquially known as Islamia University, is located in Bahawalpur, Punjab, Pakistan.

History[edit]

Islamia University began as Jamia Abbasia, a religious University established in Bahawalpur in 1925, following the academic pursuits of Al-Azhar University in Egypt. In 1975, Jamia Abbasia was declared as a general University, and renamed as The Islamia University of Bahawalpur.

Facilities[edit]

The University started at the Abbasia and Khawaja Fareed campuses with ten departments. Later, 1280 acres of land was allotted to the University on Hasilpur Road about eight kilometers away from the city centre which became the Baghdad-ul-Jadeed campus. In 2005, two more campuses were established at Rahim Yar Khan and Bahawalnagar in 2005.

The University is now at 45 departments offering 74 disciplines. In 2015, the university was ranked eighth in the general (large) category of "2015 HEC Ranking Of Universities In Pakistan" universities.
