Different building complexes have been developed for B.Sc.Ag. and B.V.Sc. & A.H. programs, which include classrooms, laboratories, stores and office rooms for the faculty members. The laboratories are maintained by the respective departments to support practical training prescribed in the courses. The laboratories are supplied with equipment for basic teaching and analytical works. There are also halls for common activities like seminar, and extra-curricular activities in the campuses. 

Student Hostels
There are separate hostel facilities for boys and girls in each of its constituent campuses. The hostels have facilities of common rooms, mess, indoor games and kitchen gardening in addition to bed rooms. Nominal fees, which include electricity charge, internet cost etc, have been charged for the students to maintain the hostels. However, the facility is not enough to accommodate all the students of B.Sc. as well as B.V.Sc. & A.H. in the hostels. Many students still reside outside the campus hostels for the first two-year of four-year study program.

There are separate libraries in each of the constituent campuses of IAAS. The library maintains mostly purchased, few donated and some research products of teachers and students in the form of books, journals, monographs, theses, annual reports and bibliographies. In addition to text as well as reference materials, the library also maintains newspapers and magazines, both national and international. Similarly, the constituent campuses have maintained the e-libraries too. The library is open for the students and faculties every day except on the public holidays. A double storied, huge, new library is also under construction in Lamjung Campus. 

Both Lamjung and Paklihawa campuses have their own Agronomy, Horticulture and Livestock farms. These farms support teaching and research requirements and are also used for production purposes. The horticulture farm includes vegetable production block, orchard and space for propagation of fruits, vegetables and ornamental plants. The livestock farm maintains local as well as exotic breeds of cattle, buffaloes, sheep, goat, swine and poultry. Lamjung campus has also a coffee orchard for practical as well as production purposes. Total farm size of Lamjung and Paklihawa campuses is about 16 ha and 35 ha, respectively. The farm products are sold to campus staff and public in a reasonable price.

In this forest, representative of Inner-Terai riverine ecosystem, banana and pineapples are common understory vegetation which allow for all kinds of research opportunities of agro-forestry. On the other hand, representative of outer-Terai region, Gauradaha campus in Jhapa occurs in a unique setting allowing for lowland rice based research opportunity including large natural fish ponds which could be utilized for research, study and commercial purposes.
