It was located in the area belonged to the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives called Kaset Klang Bangkhen or Central Kaset Bangkhen.
In 1965, M.L. Xujati Kambhu, the University President at that time, perceived that the existing area at Bangkhen was not adequate to support the educational expansion according to the National Social and Economics Development Plan. He then searched for a new site.
The University Council considered that Kamphaeng Saen District was the most appropriate site for several reasons. Firstly it was only 80 kilometres from Bangkok and 30 kilometres from down town Nakhon Pathom Province. Secondly, the soil was fertile suitable for cultivation. The water can be channeled from the Meaklong River through the irrigation canel dug from the Vajiralongkorn Dam in Kanchanaburi Province.
Moreover, big plots of land were available. The Council, then, presented the University master plan to the Cabinet for the purchase and development of land. It was approved on December 6, 1996. Kasetsart University bought altogether 7,951 rai of land and the first phase building were constructed in 1974 and finished in 1978.
On November 12, 1979, Kamphaeng Saen Campus started teaching and learning activities by moving the third and fourth year students in faculty of Agriculture and agriculture related programs from Bangkhen to Kamphaeng Saen. From 1990, Kamphaeng Saen Campus could offer classes to students from the first to the fourth year including graduate students.
