The foundation for the establishment of the Agriculture University named as ChaudharySarwan Kumar Himachal Pradesh Krishi Vishvavidyalaya (CSKHPKV), Palampur came into being after August 1, 1966 when a junior College of Agriculture was established at Palampur under the aegis of Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana. Prior to it College of Agriculture, Solan under Punjab University was established to cater the needs of hilly areas of erstwhile Punjab. After the reorganization of Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh in 1966, Colleges of Agriculture at Palampur and Solan were transferred to Himachal Pradesh University on July 22, 1970 as a part of its Agricultural Complex. The University came into existence on November 1, 1978. The Agricultural Complex comprising the Colleges of Agriculture at Palampur and Solan and the agricultural research stations in different agro-climatic zones of Himachal Pradesh formed the nucleus of the newly established University. In 1985, a separate University of Horticulture and Forestry named as Dr. Yashwant Singh Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry at Solan was carved out of CSKHPKV. The College of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Palampur was established in 1986 as a constituent second faculty of Himachal Pradesh Krishi Vishvavidayalaya. The departments of Home Science and Basic Sciences and Humanities of College of Agriculture were similarly upgraded to full-fledged College of Home Science and Basic Sciences in May, 1991. In addition to the four constituent colleges, the University has at present a network of three regional research stations, eleven research sub stations and eight Krishi VigyanKendras in different agro-climatic zones of the state to carry out its teaching, research and extension education activities. The university is duly accredited with Indian Council of Agricultural Research and has got ISO 9001:2000 Certificate
