This university was carved out of Gujarat University. On bifurcation, the North Gujarat University inherited no physical assets from its parent university. Patan, a historical town in northern part of Gujarat, was officially designated as the headquarters of the university. The town happens to have composite campus of four affiliated colleges. The managing council of the colleges was kind enough to let the infant university rent its two hostel buildings to accommodate its offices. Thus the university began to operate and serve 41 colleges scattered over the three districts of Banaskantha, Mehsana and Sabarkantha. With the two hostel buildings, the university rented Gandhi Memorial Hall to house its library. The aim was to start building a nucleus library for the future post-graduate departments. The university simultaneously moved the state government to acquire land measuring about 185 acres (0.75 km2) from farmers. It also requested the state government to transfer its seed farm land measuring about 35 acres (140,000 m2) to the university. This entailed considerable delay owing to litigation in the State High Court and then in the Supreme Court.
