Jagadguru Rambhadracharya Handicapped University (JRHU) is a government aided university in Chitrakoot, Uttar Pradesh, India. It was established in 2001 by Jagadguru Rambhadracharya for the disabled.

On 23 August 1996, Swami Rambhadracharya established the Tulasi School for the Blind in Chitrakoot. After this, he decided to establish an institution of higher learning solely for disabled students. With this aim, he founded the Jagadguru Rambhadracharya Handicapped University on 27 September 2001 in Chitrakoot, Uttar Pradesh.

The foundation stone was laid on 2 April 2001. The university was inaugurated by Rajnath Singh on 26 July 2011. The planned name was Chitrakoot Handicapped University (CHU), but later Jagadguru Rambhadracharya Handicapped University was chosen. It is run by the Jagadguru Rambhadracharya Viklang Shikshan Sansthan trust.

The university offers graduate, post-graduate and doctorate degrees in many subjects. Admissions are restricted to the four types of disabled students: visually impaired, hearing impaired, mobility impaired and mentally impaired, as defined by the Disability Act (1995) of the Government of India.

 

 

To reach out to students with limited mobility, the university offers distance education programs online, recognised by the Distance Education Council, IGNOU, New Delhi. Like other programs at the university, these are available only for the disabled.

The university offers many degrees. Bachelors and masters degrees are provided in Sanskrit, Hindi, English, Sociology, Music, Drawing & Painting, History, Culture & Archaeology.
