KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY

The Bangalore Central University inherits the legacy of the sesquicentennial Central College Campus. It all started in the year 1858 when the British started a modest school called “The Bangalore High School” with 5 students after some leading citizens of the city petitioned the British. It formed the nucleus of what would evolve into an important component of one of India’s leading universities, before it would become an independent university in post independent university in post independent India.

It is also pertinent to mention that the identity of central college is linked closely with that of the city of Bengaluru and city residents intimately identify with the majestic college as something that belongs to them. Even a cursory look at it list of alumni from the 19th century. Makes it evident that the alumni of the central college have had a deep and pervasive impact on the growth and development of Bengaluru, well into the 21st century as it transitioned from a sleepy town favored by pensioners to the bustling metropolis that is the information technology Capital of the world today. The 43-acre verdant campus in central Bengaluru us also an important green space in the city with valuable architectural heritage. Crossing a decade over a sesquicentennial presence as central college, this old reliable and highly reputed university, is now called as Bangalore Central University.
