“To be Sri Lanka’s best performing Graduate School and to be recognized internationally”
With the pride of being the Nations’ premier degree-awarding higher education institute and South Asia’s first Green University, NSBM Green University town celebrates the 3rd anniversary of its journey under the visionary leadership of its founder and Vice-Chancellor, Prof. E A Weerasinghe along with the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Chaminda Rathnayake.
After laying the foundation stone in mid-2012, at Pitipana, Homagama, claiming 26 acres of land, NSBM Green University Town was built with the purpose of setting up a unique infrastructure to provide high quality, affordable higher education in local & international university standards. This state-of-the-art university complex paves the path for local and foreign students to pursue their higher education dream.
Being a 100% fully government-owned higher education institute, NSBM commenced the construction of NSBM Green University Town in December 2013 after joining hands with BOC for a loan of LKR 8.6 billion to be the example of being a self-sustaining institute. Concurrently, NSBM commenced its operations on awarding degree programs at Nugegoda, as a city campus for a temporary period of time.
The NSBM Green University Town was officially declared open through its operations at the university premises in Pitpana, Homagama on 26th of October 2016, opening doors to a new era of Sri Lankan higher education with the strong determination to nurture the nations’ human resources. The university which is built as a model university town is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities like modern lecture halls, computer laboratories, library facilities, study areas, a recreational center with a gymnasium, a swimming pool, and an indoor stadium. This premier higher education institute further consists of an auditorium, an open-air theater, and a student center to support the university students in their aesthetic endeavors. Moreover, NSBM also provides in-site hostel facilities for students to reside while studying at NSBM, inclusive of banking facilities and a medical center.
With the dedication and vision of NSBM’s founder and its devoted academic and non-academic staff who work towards one common dream, this mammoth campus, currently houses over 9500 students spread over three faculties, reading for over 30-degree programs in diversified areas aligned to current industry trends.
Promising to keep venturing towards a holistic education within span of 3 years, NSBM is all set to begin its second phase in an adjacent land with 15-acres, proving that NSBM stayed true to its vision and mission, “to be Sri Lanka’s best performing Graduate School and to be recognized internationally”, and ensuring the stability of the university as a self-financed government body. Accordingly, a Faculty for BioScience, a Faculty for Law, a Multi-Purpose Auditorium with the capacity to house an audience of 2000, a playground and a hostel with a capacity to hold 1500 students, along with numerous other facilities shall be included in its expansions. This will be a remarkable achievement for NSBM at this juncture of celebrating its 3rd Anniversary.
NSBM currently offers undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs in the fields of Business, Computing, and Engineering which are approved by the University Grants Commission and in collaboration with University College Dublin, Ireland, Plymouth University, UK, Victoria University, Australia, and University of Western Australia, Australia.
