The University is located at a distance of 10 km from the city centre. The University Campus is spread over 960 acres of land. The University has a fleet of buses and coaches which operate regularly in order to provide transport facilities to students and staff. The University started functioning in 1975 in rented buildings with 8 departments. Presently University has 20 departments and 3 constituent colleges namely,namely; University Gilani Law College, University College of Agriculture and University College of Engineering and Technology. The University is providing the maximum possible residential facilities to the students and staff. The Bahauddin Zakariya University is a general University, providing instruction in both Arts and Science subjects. However, keeping in view the fact that agriculture is the mainstay of this region, (the place and its environs can boast of producing the country’s best silver crop (Cotton) and fruit crops (Mangoes, Citrus, and Dates), it was considered expedient to train manpower in the region for solving agricultural problems. Accordingly, a College of Agriculture was established in 1989. (The College of Agriculture and its complement, an Engineering College, form an integral part of the University Plan). The College of Engineering & Technology was established in 1994. Department of Commerce was started from November, 1996. BBA classes were started in the Department of Business Administration from October, 1996. Bachelor of Computer Science has also been introduced in the Department of Computer Science from November, 1996. B.Sc. Electrical Engineering class was started in November, 1997. Information Technology Centre was established in July 1999.


In 1975, the Government of the Punjab decided to set up four Engineering Colleges at Taxila, Multan, Faisalabad and Bahawalpur in the same order of priority. In accordance with the decision of the Punjab Cabinet, the first Engineering College initially started functioning at Sahiwal and was later, in 1978, shifted to Taxila as a second campus of the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore. Later its status was raised to an independent University of Engineering and Technology. The proposal for the second College of Engineering and Technology at Multan met the approval of the ECNEC in September 1990. The College of Engineering and Technology was thus established as a Constituent College of the Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan. Its broad objective is to produce engineers at undergraduate level with bachelor’s degree in conventional fields of Civil, Building & Architectural, Electrical, Computer and Mechanical Engineering to meet the engineering and technological manpower requirements of the province/country. The College offers courses leading to the award of 4-Year engineering degree in Civil, Electrical, Building & Architectural, Computer and Mechanical Engineering. The College envisages to provide for teaching facilities to 1013 students at an annual intake of 243 students (in all disciplines of engineering) after the completion of the project. Due to certain spatial, financial and administrative constraints, the College started Civil Engineering Program in 1994. In 1997, Electrical Engineering Program was started. In 2004 three new disciplines namely Building & Architectural Engineering, Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering were started.
