History

DHA Suffa University was granted its charter by the government of Sindh in 2002. The university derives its name Suffa from the rectangular platform called Suffah in Al-Masjid an-Nabawi, where companions of Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم used to gather to seek knowledge. The construction of the present campus on 1 acres of land in DHA Phase VII (Ext) was started in 2004 and completed in 2007. The capacity of the campus is 3000 students.[6]

DSU was recognized as a private sector degree awarding institution by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC) in the year 2012. In its very first participation in the annual ranking process of HEC for the year 2014, DSU achieved the impressive ranking of 31 out of 169 public and private sector universities of Pakistan.
