BSNL has opened its exchange within the university campus thus providing landline and mobile connections on priority to the university residents.  The mobile cell tower is also located within the campus.  With the help of BSNL, Udhampur, the University has its own digital telephone exchange and a mobile tower on the campus. The land and building for said purpose was provided by the University to have better telephone connectivity and optical fiber based Internet service on the campus. The new exchange supports CLI (Caller Line Identification) apart from the other services. So far as the internal telephone network is concerned, SMVDU has one of the latest up to date systems (one of the best in the state of Jammu & Kashmir), A Siemens Hipath 4300 series IP ready communication server with 336 (expandable upto 1392 extentions) analog and 24 digital extensions. With over 300 analog extensions and a couple of digital extensions already made functional in the academic and residential areas of the university, voice mail facility and voice interactive system has been incorporated in the EPABX system. This has allowed users to receive calls from anywhere with zero or close to zero dependence on call transfer. As a part of the expansion plan 100 more extensions are being planned for future expansion. With the passage of time and depending on advancements in technology and as per the needs of the university more and more enhancements will be incorporated in the system. Mobile connectivity of almost all the operators operating in J&K is possible on the campus.All this has enabled us to have excellent infrastructure to make the University as a role model. It also reinforces the thought that students are valued consumers and the education system student-centric.

Power & Water Supply

Enough care has been taken to provide all the basic necessities required for healthy and happy stay and learning on the campus. Looking at the overall erratic power supply in this part of the country, the university, from the very beginning, decided to have an exclusive 33KV substation on the campus to ensure uninterrupted power supply to all the parts of the campus, deriving input directly from the Jajharkotli grid. As the result of this there is no shortage or curtailment of the power on the campus, a great advantage for the fully residential University. The University also provides uninterrupted power back ups, wherever required, with the help of high power generator and inverters. The University has a dug well with a provision of pumping and storing 1, 00,000 gallons of good water in the campus daily. The quality of water supplied is good for human consumption and is checked regularly for quality.

Transportation

The public transport facilities are available in the form of min-bus which plies on the Domel-Katra route.  All buses stop in front of the university gate and are available every hour.  The University has also organized its own bus facility for students from Campus to Domel and back on specific times during the weekdays and the weeknds for the convenience of the students.  a specail bus facility from Campus to Jammu and back is available on every Saturday for the convenience of Faculty & Staff members and their families.
