University of Delhi developed a strong Information and Communication Technology (ICT) network across the city within a very short period of  time. The setup of the University ICT Network was initiated by a grant of Rs. 3.85 crore from the Department of Information Technology of the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, as part of Gyan Vahini project of e-enabling Universities. A gigabit fiber-optic backbone was laid in the two campuses of the University. Initially there was provision for 3,000 nodes, stretched across nearly 80 buildings, covering all departments, centres and administrative units of the University, 13 campus colleges and 16 on-campus hostels. The project was executed by ERNET India on a turnkey basis and the network was inagurated in December 2003.

The network was subsequently been upgraded with the help of an additional grant of Rs. 2 crore from the Ministry of Human resource Development. The reach of the network has been extended, the North and South campuses have been connected directly by a dedicated wireless link. Almost all off-campus Colleges have been brought on  the University Network through  wireless link. At present we have  more than  15,000 network access points. Services available to users include access to the Internet through 1 GB band-with provided by NKN to the two campuses. As for as possible, every faculty member, official and research scholar has an individual electronic mailbox that can be accessed remotly from anywhere on the Internet. The University on its own subscribes to a number of electronic journals. With the help of the UGC-Infonet-Inflibnet consortium, electronic subscriptions to a collection of the world's most prestigious journals had become accessible to users throughout the University.
