About the University
Higher education is the catalyst for social change, economic development, and productive human resources. The universities had been the house of research and innovations since long. People of the far off cities had struggled for acquiring a quality higher education because of the non-availability of higher education instructions at or near their milieu. The same was the case with the dwellers of Okara as there was a dire need for such provision in this area. Therefore, to cater for the higher education needs of the local people, University of Education Lahore established its campus at Okara in 2005. Following the inauguration of the campus by the Ex-senior Federal Minister and Minister for Defense, late Rao Sikandar Iqbal, classes were started at “Kalsoom Educational Campus” Samadpura Okara in October 2005. In the following years, University was shifted to the newly established building at Renalakhurd where 204 acres of land was allocated by the Government of Pakistan to the university. On April 1, 2016, notification for the establishment of the University of Okara was issued by the Government of Punjab.
