Presidency University West Bengal has a unique place in history. It was one of the first institutes of Western-type higher education in Asia. In 1817, a group of liberal Indians and Englishmen set up the Hindoo College. This was taken by the British Government in 1855 as the College of the Bengal Presidency, and located in 1857 under the newly founded Calcutta University. The formal establishment of Presidency University in July 2010 allows it to refashion its venerable civilizations and current strengths into a leading institution of the future.
