Habib University has an all-inclusive philosophy which seeks to cater not only to students in Karachi, but also nationwide and internationally. Our students are introduced to a life of unlimited opportunities with Pakistan’s economic hub as their laboratory.

Why Karachi?

A diverse metropolis of more than 20 million people, Karachi is the financial and social hub of Pakistan. As the center of technological and entrepreneurial innovation, it is the city where dreamers come to make it big, capitalizing on the vast array of opportunities available to them. This sprawling port city is also home to a population of migrants from a myriad of backgrounds, all combined in a melting pot to make Karachi one of the most diverse cities in the world. With its world-class cuisine, beaches and local attractions, it has earned a reputation as one of the liveliest cities in Pakistan, or as it is popularly known, “the city of lights.”

Habib University is a microcosm of this blend of cultures – our Lions are not only encouraged to excel academically but are also taught to listen to differing opinions; to explore ideas that conflict with their own, all the while respecting the tremendous diversity that makes this city quintessentially Karachi.

Habib University captures within its academic walls the spirit of tolerance, entrepreneurship and risk-taking that is Karachi. It opens doors for you in the financial, industrial and non-profit sector. Explore Habib University – a campus linked to the energy of the bustling city outside its gates.

Accommodation for Out of Karachi Students

Habib University prioritizes the health and safety of its students, faculty and staff above all else. After an extensive review of what would be required to safely run student hostels in the context of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have come to the realization that we will not be able to operate hostels with the level of assurance we require to guarantee student safety. We have, therefore, made the difficult decision to suspend the operation of all Habib University student hostels for the duration of the pandemic.
