International Journal of Innovative Technology and Exploring Engineering
According to U. S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Census Bureau, University City are those cities or metropolitan statistical area where total population is between 2,50,000 and one million, out of which minimum 10% should be the student population. Meanwhile college towns are where students do not continue to settle in that locality unlike University Cities where students find an employment and continue staying. Articles show that no relevant or successful University cities exist in India so far. Nonetheless there are a lot of Urban Outgrowths like college/university towns which have developed in India over the years that have made an impact in the growth of town locally in various sectors. The author tries to make an attempt to look at the effects of existence of University in the population and the growth of nearby public places through observations of an Indian town incorporating the knowledge of existing research in the field available globally.
