Police said that the group involved in the arson has not been identified.
A local Arun Yadab said that three youths torched the campus when security guard Sadananda Yadab had gone for dinner.
The campus administration has said that the youths sprinkled petrol by breaking glass of the campus window while setting the campus ablaze.
One computer, printer, a wooden rack and registration forms have been damaged in the incident.
Arun Yadab said that the youths ran away after the locals shouted at them after hearing the breaking of window glass. No further damaged was caused as the fire was doused immediately.
