The University which has its headquarters in Hyderabad has four more campuses at Warangal in Telangana State and Srisailam, Rajahmundry and Kuchipudi campuses in Andhra Pradesh state.
The University has significantly contributed to the academic and cultural development of Telugu people residing in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh states apart from Telugus residing in other states and abroad. The University functioning under Telangana State Government is also extending its services to three campuses situated in Andhra Pradesh.

For this purpose, the state government has merged the Sahitya, Sangeetha, Nataka, Nritya and Lalitha Kala Academies, International Telugu Institute and Telugu Bhasha Samithi into the University. Thus, the University was established to function as a central organization for teaching and research in Language, literature, history, Culture, Fine Arts, Performing Arts, religion and philosophy of the Telugu speaking people.
