Jaffna Regional Centre is the 3rd Regional Centre of the OUSL that was established in 1984. Presently, we cater to over 2000 students representing all the five Faculties of the OUSL. We offer graduate, post-graduate and certificate program. We offer our students modern lecture rooms, an Elementary Computer Lab and an updated Regional Library. The Jaffna Regional Centre began to function in the own building since 1990. Although the 3 decades of civil war impacted a lot on the function of Jaffna Regional Centre, it was awarded as the most promising regional centre in 2012. It is the leading ODL institute in the Northern Province with its four study centres: Vavuniya; Kilinochchi; Mullaitivu; and Mannar.
