Calling the celebration on Valentine's Day a western tradition, the varsity issued the order on February 10.

While asking students to stay away from campus, chief proctor Vinod Singh mentioned that no classes or extra classes would be held on the campus on February 14.

The university issued advisory to its students to not to roam inside the premises of the university on Valentine's Day (14.2.2018). "Such a directive must be condemned. the university can not bar students from entering its campus under any circumstances", a student said.

"Will they act like Bajrang Dal activists after Valentine day when a boy and girl will talk to each other in university" asked Asha Gautam a graduation second year student.

However, after facing criticisms, Vice Chancellor of the University, SP Singh, said some lines have been added in the notice due to over-excitement, but the objective of the letter was not wrong. Disciplinary action will be taken against whosoever is found violating the advisory.

While the couples seem to be enjoying this special advisory by the Lucknow University in full flow, the diktat by the Lucknow University has irked some of the students.

Students protested against the move and called it "an example of chhoti soch". A student said, "You've declared a holiday on that day, but telling students to not enter university premises isn't right at all. This order is meant to prevent outsiders from entering the university and polluting the atmosphere here", Singh said.

Last year, the institution warned students against bringing gifts or flowers to college on Valentine's Day over concerns that it led to harassment of women.
