The University of Delhi, also known as Delhi University, is one of India’s premier universities, well regarded for its high standards in teaching and research and attracts eminent scholars to its faculty. Set up in 1922 as a unitary, teaching and residential university by an Act of the then Central Legislative Assembly, the President of India is the Visitor with the Vice President as the Chancellor and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of India the Pro-Chancellor of the university.
Delhi University’s strong commitment to excellence in teaching and research has made it a role-model and path-setter for other universities in the country. The university had a modest beginning with just three colleges St. Stephen’s College (1881), Hindu College (1899) and Ramjas College (1917), two faculties (Arts and Science) and 750 students.
Spread across 69 acres of green, hilly terrain, the university’s south campus was set up in 1973 to facilitate easier access for the residents of South Delhi.
