By Prince Harsh (Class of 2018) , 6 months ago
It is located in South Kolkata. It is easily accessible from any of the Kolkata stations.
Hostel facilities are pretty good here as compared to other colleges and the fee for it is also minimal. Academic facilities are also great as they use modern teaching methods here.
Various opportunities are provided to each student here. In extracurricular activities, the college hosts a technical fest, sports tournament, cultural fest, etc. Jadavpur University is a place where you get an exposure to various things along quality education.
Almost all the global giants alongside Indian companies come to the campus providing good opportunities for placements. However, the packages offered here are less than those offered at IITs.
Along with quality conventional teaching, audiovisual teaching is also prevalent in the university. Well-equipped laboratories are also provided to students here.

The campus is located in South Kolkata in the locality of Jadavpur. It is easily accessible by road and by rail. There is Jadavpur Railway Station as well as a bus stand in the proximity. There is a mall and a cinema hall in the vicinity. Students also can access the police station which is right beside the main hostel for any problem. For health related issues, KPC Medical College and Hospital or EDF are preferred as they are nearest to the college.
Academic facilities are excellent here with state of the art classrooms and seminar halls. Each department is equipped with a library apart from a Central Library. Hostels for both boys and girls are provided separately. But hostel rooms are not enough to accommodate all the students, so students also live in PGs nearby which are available at a nominal rate. Canteens are available inside the campus which provide cheap and tasty food.
Both the campuses of JU are gifted with a big playground and all the accessories for sports are also available. The annual tech fest named Srikanto is held every year and attracts participants from lots of colleges. The annual cultural fest Sanskriti is already a famous fest in Kolkata.
JU's placement has always been good. One of the many reasons students throng to this university is this. Samsung, Google, Microsoft, Adobe, Amazon, Maruti Suzuki, Tata, ONGC Petro, Haldia Petro, CESC, BPCL and many others come for campusing here. The average salary, taking into account all the streams is approximately 6 lac per annum. Students go for internships mainly after the 3rd year to industries or universities for further exposure in their respective fields.
The faculty of JU has and will always be top notch. The professors are eager to teach as well as learn here. Students are encouraged to take part in discussions and raise questions. All the professors are PhDs and some are from the Ivy League and other famous universities in Europe and US. Group Activities in the form of lab experiments are encouraged.

The college is located in the main area and easily accessible via all modes of transports.
The college has a big library. The hostel rooms and the hostel mess is quite affordable. The canteen provides good and healthy food.
The college needs to promote sports.
Placements are good but in architecture department, people usually prefer higher studies.
The college has highly qualified teaching staff. The only problem is the mode of communication which switches between Bengali and English.

Jadavpur University is situated at Jadavpur. Opposite to the campus, there is 8b bus stand. From where buses of Howrah, Behala, Salt Lake, Airport buses are available.
The University hostels are also very well maintained. There are around 10 blocks of boy's hostel and 3 blocks of ladies' hostel.
The campus is more or less crowded on weekdays. Jadavpur University has its own non-political clubs such as Jadavpur University Photographic Club (JUPC), Jadavpur University Science Club (JUSC), Jadavpur University Mountaineering Club (JUMC), which are most active clubs. More clubs are there, such as Chess Club, Drama Club, Music Club.
Placements are quiet well. Many gets good salary package duing the placement drive.
Here all things are done by students. Students sets their class routines etc. Everything is in the hand of students.

Located in heart of Kolkata city and well connected by every means of transport make reaching out to the college easy for all.
Hostel of Jadavpur University is not allotted to all of its students because of the lack of hostel rooms.
Sports area needs to be improved in my opinion. University should promote their sports teams more.
Placement wise, Jadavpur is one of the excellent universities.
More smart class facilities should be included in the campus.
