The students participate in various extra-curricular activities such as dance, music, fine arts, etc. The university organises NUZEAL- an annual Intra-Institute Cultural Festival, where the Board hosts events like Music, Dance, Theatre, Literary, Personality contests, etc. Garba, the traditional dance form of Gujarat, is loved and enjoyed by people from all sections of society and across all age groups during Navratri.
