Pokhara University is in its 25th year of establishment and the university is celebrating Silver Jubilee with various programs on this occasion.

It was established in 2054 BS under Pokhara University Act 2053 BS. The University of Pokhara has been established as a result of the continuous and concrete initiatives taken by educationists including local organizations, entrepreneurs, businessmen, intellectuals, social activists, etc., saying that a university should be established in Pokhara as soon as the concept of multi-university was introduced in Nepal after 2040 BS.

It is located in the Pokhara Metropolitan City of Kaski District in the Gandaki Province of the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal.

Accordingly, the then government has provided only 1,372 ropanis of land for redistribution of Pokhara University. The rest of the land allotted for the university has not been acquired for tenure.

At present, the university has 4 Constituent Colleges, 133 permanent and 41 contract teachers with a total of 174 teachers and 150 permanent, 4 contracts and 28 service contract administrative staff.
