Presidency University, Kolkata, formerly Hindu College and Presidency College, is a public state university located in Kolkata, West Bengal.

The college was established in 1817 by Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Radhakanta Deb, David Hare, Justice Sir Edward Hyde East, Baidyanath Mukhopadhya and Rasamay Dutt.

After a few years of establishment, in 1855, the Pathshala wing of Hindu College was renamed as Hindu School and the Mahapathshala wing was renamed as Presidency College, i.e., the college of the Bengal Presidency. In 2010, under West Bengal’s Chief Minister, Buddhadeb Bhattacharya, who was a former student of the college, it was upgraded to the status of a full university by the Presidency University Act, 2010, passed in the West Bengal Legislative Assembly.

The longest serving Principal of Presidency College was J. Sutcliff, who was its principal intermittently for 20 years, from 1852-1875. This university is one of the finest academic institutions in India and boasts of an exceptional pool of notable alumni spread across the world.

In 2017, the University is going to hugely celebrate it’s glorious bincentenary period.
