  • The University of Agriculture, Faisalabad (or UAF)(Urdu: جامعہ زرعيه فيصل آباد‎), (Formally: Punjab Agricultural College and Research Institute), is a university in the city of Faisalabad, Punjab, Pakistan.It was established in 1906 as the first major institution of higher agricultural education in the undivided Punjab. At independence in 1947, Pakistan was a predominantly agricultural country. In spite of subsequent industrialization and development, agriculture remains central to its economy. After independence, the Government of Pakistan appointed National Commissions on Food and Education to reform the existing agrarian system in Pakistan and to formulate measures for developing better agricultural potential. The commissions made a plea for the establishment of an agricultural university for research and education in agriculture. It was established by upgrading the former Punjab Agricultural College and Research Institute in 1961. The 1,950 acre university campus represents both history and the present era. The new campus is lush green with a conglomeration of monolithic blocks built in modern style. The old campus is reminiscent of traditional Muslim architecture. The campus is located in the centre of the city at a distance of 12 km north east of the Faisalabad International Airport, about 2 km. The university's faculty comprises more than 500 teachers. The university has several boys hostels, a couple of girls hostels. It accommodates over 5,000 students and approximately 3,000 day scholars. Premier hostels are Jinnah hostel (named after the founder of Pakistan Muhammad Ali Jinnah), Iqbal Hall and Fatima Jinnah Hostel. (en)
