University of Bangalore History

Bangalore University Jnana Bharathi was opened as the Central College, Bangalore in 1886, by the British Government to award University degrees. It was renamed as the Bangalore University from Central College, Bangalore by the UGC, India on July 10, 1964 by the government under the then State of Mysore to consolidate institutions of higher education in the city of Bangalore.

Bangalore University Jnana Bharathi now operates from two campuses – the Central College Campus and the Jnana Bharathi Campus.

The Central College, Bangalore ( established in 1886 ) and the University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering ( UVCE ) ( established in 1912 ) ( the two original institutions in Bangalore ) were subsumed into this Bangalore University Jnana Bharathi.

With the promulgation of the Karnataka State Universities Ordinance of 1975, which aimed at bringing uniformity to all universities in the state, Bangalore University Jnana Bharathi lost its federal character and became a state – affiliated university. In 1973, Bangalore University Jnana Bharathi moved to the Jnana Bharathi Campus located on 1,100 acres ( 4.5 km2 ) of land.

The Bangalore University gave birth to universities like Visvesvarya Technological University, Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Science and the National Institute Mental Health and Neuroscience.


Bangalore University Jnana Bharathi has an Institute of Aerospace Medicine ( IAM ) which has been included by ISRO for astronaut training for the Indian space program. Bangalore University has been awarded Sir M Visvesvarya chair from ISRO to perform research in space science.

By virtue of Bangalore University Jnana Bharathi producing the largest number of Ph.D.s in India, it has also established a good reputation in foreign universities. Consequently the university hosts a growing number of foreign students.
