HISTORY OF WUM
Nestled in the enclave of the heart of the city, The Women University has the distinction of becoming the first University for Women in the city of Multan. To keep pace with the ever-growing demand for the educational reforms, a persistent evolutionary process is needed that can transform a newly established university into a hub of knowledge. In order to reap the benefits of knowledge dissemination, a proposal for setting up the university was designed that can serve the national interest in a broad framework. To compete on par with the global standards, a comprehensive and focused education revamp was demanded in the form of an institution that could serve the inhabitants of the city as well as the nation altogether. It could be a matter of elation for the local fraternity to find an institute of advanced studies in their vicinity, easily accessible to the female knowledge seekers.
To serve the purpose, at the initial stage the university is housed in the existing Kutchery Campus of Government Degree College for Women, Multan. The emergence of the College into the Women University took place in 2012 under the Act approved by Punjab Assembly in 2010, attaining an entity of one of the campuses of the WUM. Another campus building at Matital Road is also completed for providing an ambitious plan of the University for the years to come. The WUM has multifaceted goals ahead which it is committed to achieve in the years to come. In its own role the University emphasizes the exploration of values, sense of community and grooming of the talent residing within the students.
For this it has given the opportunity to such persons in the form of faculty which could serve as true mentors and role models. The WUM is offering ground breaking research facilities to excel in meeting the global challenges of the future. The mission is to highlight the importance of education which can serve as a gear to empower women. We believe the University has all that is needed to ignite potential, purpose, skill and pioneering spirit in the knowledge seekers.

To compete on par with the global standards, a comprehensive and focused educational revamp was demanded in the form of an institution that could serve the inhabitants of the city as well as the nation altogether. It could be a matter of elation for the local fraternity to find an institute of Advanced Studies in their vicinity, easily accessible to the female knowledge seekers. To serve the purpose, at initial stage the WUM was only housed in the Kutchery Campus of Government Degree College for Women, Multan.
But this space was found insufficient for university activities. The realization of this need led to the establishment of new campus which is situated at Matital road, Multan. Matital campus building is almost completed providing an ambitious plan of the University for the years to come. Admin block, central library, cafeteria, medical center, security set up/panel, sewerage system/lines, roads/pathways, boundary wall have been completed. The faculty and students’ hostels are also ready for accommodation. Since 2017, departments of Botany, Zoology, Environmental Sciences and Microbiology and Molecular Genetics have been shifted to Matital Campus. Remaining departments are planned to be shifted to the Matital Campus in next phase soon InshaaAllah. University buses and shuttle service are available from Kutchary Campus to Matitalcampus for the staff and students.
