  • Overview

Landlord of that time, Roy Bahadur Anandra Chandra Roy, established the college on 24 September 1899. Anandra Chandra Roy was a renowned patron of promoting and developing education in the district. He was a contractor by profession and accordingly set aside a large amount of money to establish a college for the development of higher education in Comilla. Comilla Victoria College was thus born to fulfill his long cherished dream. In recognition of his noble endeavour, the British Government awarded him the title “Roy Bahadur” after the establishment of the college. A white sculpture was built in front of the main gate of intermediate section of the college to keep the memory of Roy Bahadur alive. Queen Victoria was the empress of India from 1876 to 1901. At that time, Comilla was under the rule of the empire, hence the college was named as Comilla Victoria College. [1]

Sattendranath Boshu was the first principal of the college. He was the headmaster of former Comilla Victoria School. He remained the principal of the college till his death. He was a scholar as well as a researcher of literature. He was also a professor of English and was awarded Rabindranath Prize for his outstanding contribution to literature. [1]

Until 1947, the college was affiliated to Calcutta University. Between 1925 and 1947 it offered three-year honors programs in English, Mathematics, Sanskrit, Politics, Economics and Arabic. The college introduced Bachelor of Science courses in 1942 and Bachelor of Commerce courses in 1956. Honors courses in Political Science, Physics, Chemistry, Accounting and Management were introduced in 1971-72. Masters Program in Bangla and Economics started in 1973. [1]

In 1962-63, the degree section of the college was shifted to its new campus at Dharmapur, which is three kilometers from the old campus at Ranir Dighi. The old campus now houses the offices of the principal and vice-principal, teachers' room, principal's residence, gymnasium, auditorium, library, and science laboratories. The new campus has four new buildings and these are used for academic activities. The college was nationalised in 1968. Many of the students fought in the country's war of independence. ICMA program was started from 1982. In 1984-85, it became a postgraduate college. In 1996, the college had honours courses in 16 subjects. [1]
