The campus becomes shrouded in thick, white fogs in the winter months. The foggy  months starts from October and continues till early February. The ambient temperature in the campus stays almost  one to  three degrees below the temperature of the city area and the surroundings due to its greeneries.

The above photograph shows an early January morning fog.


In the spring and autumn, the campus wears a very colourful look with its blooming Gulmohurs and other flowering trees like Golden Shower (সোনাৰু).

The university is also famously known as the Land of Gulmohur (কৃষ্ণচূড়া নগৰী) for the abundance of Golmhur trees throughout the campus. It also figures in popular songs and literatures.

With numerous wet lands, the campus is also a site of local biodiversity.

The Botanical Garden is maintained by the Department of Botany. Spread across the campus at the foot of a small hill, the garden has some rare species of plants.
