Kailali Multiple Campus (KMC) is located in Dhangadhi, the headquarter of Seti Zone of Far Western Nepal. The population of Kailali District largely comprises of native Tharus and migrated people from different districts of the Far-Western Region and other parts of Nepal.
Kailali District is one of the most backward districts of Nepal with little infrastructure base and a poor state of educational facilities which is evident from the fact that prior to the establishment of KMC in 1980, most of the students of this region had to go to Kathmandu or to India for further studies beyond SEE.
The absence of educational opportunities after SEE created an urgent social demand for the establishment of a campus in the district. The people of Kailali thus took the initiative for the establishment of a campus. Consequently, Kailali Commerce Campus, which was later renamed as Kailali Multiple Campus, was established in 1980 as an affiliated Campus of Tribhuvan University. In 2021, it became a constituent campus of Far-West University.
At the request of the people of Kailali, the Government of Nepal granted 27 bighas of land in the Eastern part of Dhangadhi town where the Campus premises are located at present. Financial and other resources required for the establishment of the Campus were raised locally.
Contribution to the Campus fund was made by the business community, social workers, the Kailali District Development Committee, Dhangadhi Municipality, and other segments of the society also liberally donated for this purpose.
In 2018, the Government of Nepal declared KMC as the best community campus of Nepal with cash prizee of Rs. 250,000. At present, KMC has become one of the largest community based campuses of Nepal and has around 9,000 students studying in the campus.
The mission of the campus is to provide access to higher education for the people of the Far West and the country with emphasis to educationally disadvantaged and marginalized people of the sociert. Maintaining its accreditation status, the campus aspires to evolve as a center of excellence in higher education through focused efforts on human resources development, quality education, development of physical infrastructure and extension of academic programs as per the need of community .
