Internet is a revolutionary invention, it has always been transforming itself into some or other new kind of hardware and software which makes it irresistible for anyone. Nowadays the communication is in the form of human-human or human-device. But the future of internet i.e. IoT promises a machine-machine type of communication. The IoT is a system comprising various devices or systems which are intelligently connected which interacts and communicates with other machines, environments, objects and infrastructures. With the areas like business, transportation, medicine, energy, agriculture and others, the Internet of Things also finds a major implication in education. A university campus can be considered as the ideal place for the creation of a smart environment. The aim of the hereby paper is to describe a new concept called Smart University by providing a comprehensive overview of the IoT scenario and reviews its enabling technologies and the sensor networks.
