About Us

The Northern Regional Centre of the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) was started in 2012 at a rented accommodation provided by the Government of J&K in Jammu. The Centre was shifted to the present permanent premises on December 6, 2022.

The foundation stone for the new campus was laid by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of Bharat Shri Narendra Modi on February 3, 2019. Nestled in an environmentally rich location, the new premises house an administrative block, separate hostels for girls and boys, a mess, faculty quarters, a library, a computer lab, a conference room, a seminar hall, and a TV studio. The campus is surrounded by lush greenery and picturesque landscapes.
