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 with the term ad conditions agrarian system and to formulate measures for developing 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 university has several boys hostels, couple of girls hostels. It accommodates over 5,000 students and approximately 3,000 day scholars.
