Extensive gardens, lawns, and open spaces in the University are maintained on a daily basis by the malis, horticulturist and office staff of the Garden committee. In addition to watering, weeding, plantings, and daily upkeep of green areas, extensive recycling of dry leaf for production of organic manure/khad and mulching; collection of seeds of flowering plants is done each year. When required, the work is shared with professional outsourcing companies for machine-driven chores and inputs. In gardens, sprinklers are used to conserve water.
Recent initiatives include ongoing development of herbal garden, "Nakshatra" and "Navgraha" gardens based on seasonality and medicinal importance of various plant species. Recent plantations of tree species include Elaeocarpus ganitrius, Adansonia digitata, and Ficus benghalensis var. krishnae.
