Diamond Harbour Women’s University [DHWU] came into existence in 2013. It was established under the West Bengal Act XXXVII of 2012 on 28th January 2013. It is the first University in this region and has been envisaged in answer to the long-standing requirement of the girl-student of this region and beyond for greater scope in the search for the attainment of selfhood.

This is a region with strong links to the metropolis Kolkata. It is well connected by road and rail and is the gateway to the Sunderbans, an eco-region of recognized significance. It marks the confluence of the mighty river Hooghly (a tributary of the Ganga) with the Bay of Bengal. In January the Gangasagar Mela attracts thousands of pilgrims across the country. The region remains rural, though fishery is an important economic activity, increasingly acquiring industrial dimensions. In recent years, migration, both short and long term has become an important demographic feature of the region.

The Diamond Harbour Road connecting south-west Kolkata to Diamond Harbour has emerged as an education hub. Beginning with the campus of the Indian Institute of Management, Joka, Calcutta there are other major management institutes such as Calcutta Business School, Neotia Institute of Technology, Management and Science, etc. There are also well-known schools such as Vivekananda Mission, K.E.Carmel School, Ramakrishna Mission Siksha Mandir, etc. The region has a strong tradition in undergraduate education and there are a number of flourishing undergraduate colleges in and around the area.
