This paper was an attempt to assimilate the medicinal plant status of the Jyoti Nivas College Autonomous, Bengaluru, Karnataka by analyzing their diversity and conservation status. Jyoti Nivas College covering approximately four acres of open area in addition to lawns, garden, teaching and administrative blocks. Survey of medicinal plant diversity was carried out in Jyoti Nivas College campus. This survey was conducted based on the participatory observations and field visit to all places of our college campus. During survey visit a total of 27 medicinal plants species were identified. The main purpose of this survey is to collect data about medicinal plants available in our college campus in-order to preserve its valuable bioresources. All these plants having enormous medicinal properties including antibacterial, anticancer, antidiabetic, antiviral, antifungal, antidote, anthelminthic, anti-analgesic and they can cure cough, cold, ulcers, diarrhea, skin disorders, snake-bite etc. Due to these enormous medicinal properties of surveyed plants, some precious plants which are sensitive to these hazards are getting a place in the list of 'an endangered plants'. After few decades some valuable plants may be disappeared in our college campus because of those risks, so we hope that this survey will be helpful to the upcoming batches of Jyoti Nivas College students, through this they can get some ideas and information about medicinal plants of Jyoti Nivas College campus.
