About Patna University

Patna University is the 7th oldest University of the Indian subcontinent, which was established in the year 1917 to cater to the growing needs of higher education of Bihar, Orissa and Nepal.  Since its birth, the University was fortunate to have the guidance and co-operation of eminent residents of Bihar and Orissa such as Hasan Imam (who became the President of Indian National Congress) Dr. Rajendra Prasad (the first President of our republic and an eminent freedom fighter), Sachidanand Sinha (the first President of the Constituent Assembly of India and the maker of the modern Bihar and the longest serving Vice-Chancellor of Patna University), Braj Kishore Prasad (a great freedom fighter) etc. The Patna University has played vital role in India’s struggle for independence against colonial domination and also in the task of national reconstruction during post-independence period. This was the centre of nationalist and revolutionary activities. One needs to recount the services rendered by Mazharul Haque, Rajendra Prasad, Sri Krisna Sinha, Dr. Sachidanand Sinha, Anugral Narain Sinha, Jay Prakash Narayan, B. P. Mandal, Karpoori Thakur, L. N. Mishra, Baliram Bhagat, Ram Dulari Sinha, Sidheshwar Prasad and many others, all alumni of this University. The Quit India Movement of 1947 had its loudest echoes in the portals of this institution. The Total Revolution of Jai Prakash Narayan in 1974 had its support base in this University.  It is the only teaching and residential university in the populous State of Bihar. The University provides a number of professional courses at the graduation and post graduation level in areas of emerging importance like Biotechnology, Biochemistry, BCA, MCA, Fashion Designing, Sales Management, Business Management, Rural Management, Functional English, Saral Sanskrit Sambhashan, Journalism and Mass Communication etc. Out of thirteen constituent Colleges, three of them are exclusively meant for girls and the other eight are Co-educational Institutions where the number of girl students is fairly large.  The University has a compact campus contiguously extending from Patna Women’s College to Patna Law College stretching over a distance of 10 km and situated on the bank of river Ganga.
