The University of Calcutta was founded on January 24, 1857. Its formation was initiated by the Court of Directors of East India Company. The University first adopted the pattern of University of London and gradually introduced modifications in its constitution.

It boasts of many distinguished alumni among whom Bankimchandra Chatterjee, Swami Vivekanand, Dr.Rajendra Prasad and Subhash Chandra Bose are the prominent.

It has given our country Nobel Laureates like Rabindranath Tagore, C V Raman and Amartya Sen. No wonder it has been ranked at number fifth in the NIRF Ranking of 2019 in the university category.

The University has 65 departments organised into 8 faculties: agriculture; arts; commerce; social welfare and business management; education, journalism and library science; engineering and technology; fine arts, music and home science; law and science.

University of Calcutta has the biggest research centre which started from the 100th Science Congress of India in January, 2013. This is the Centre for Research in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (CRNN) in the Technology Campus of CU at Salt Lake, West Bengal. The university has 18 research centres, 710 teachers, 3000 non-teaching staff and 11,000 post-graduate students.

The first university library started functioning in the 1870s. Apart from 39 departmental libraries it has a central library, two campus libraries, and two libraries of the advanced centres spread across the seven campuses. Students of affiliated colleges can also access the central library. The university library has over 10 million books and more than 200,000 bound journals, proceedings, manuscripts, and patents.

Most of the affiliated undergraduate colleges located in the city have their own separate student hostels. The university has 17 hostels, of which eight (two for UG and six for PG) are for women, and in total 13 hostels are for PG students, which are scattered all over the city. As of 2012, 136 colleges are affiliated with the university.
