K L University is situated in a spacious, well laid out, lush green campus on the banks of Buckingham Canal tributary of the mighty Krishna river,8 kilometers from Vijayawada,a renowned cultural, political and educational center and the current capital city of Andhra Pradesh. The city is well connected by both road and rail with Chennai (440 kms), Hyderabad (275 kms), Vizag (385 kms) and is a key interconnection junction for trains running from the North to the South of India. Several daily flights currently operate between Vijayawada and Hyderabad, Visakhapatnam, Tirupati, Coimbatore, Chennai, Jaipur, Delhi and Bangalore and the airport is being upgraded to accommodate more flights to newer destinations.

The University surroundings are a virtual paradise of pristine nature and idyllic beauty with a campus ambience that are most conducive for scholastic pursuits.
