The Gujarat University is well known for its green spaces with varied flora and fauna, including pollinators like insects, birds, and mammals. They contribute to ameliorating air pollution in the campus. Hundreds of students utilize the garden spaces for their debates and discussion; sometimes, classes are held in the open green spaces. Many bird watchers visit the campus gardens. The public also participates in Nature-walks through the University gardens as well as the nearby. Residents from neighboring areas and the city come to the campus for morning and evening walks, a major service rendered to the public by the Gujarat University Campus garden.
The University gardens have several landscape elements. A popular destination for students, teachers, and the public is the University Clock Building, which is the main administrative block of the University. The gardens of the Botanical faculty buildings have their own beauty. The gardens of the inner quadrangles of the Art faculty buildings and the Science blocks are known for their aesthetics and are used extensively by students and faculty. Gardens of the University Guest House, the International Guest House, and various post-graduate hostels have a serene beauty.
