Berhampore Girls' College was established in 1946. It is the first government sponsored girls' college in the state of West Bengal. The institution was founded by Smt. Amiya Rao, an eminent scholar and the wife of the District Collector Sri B.G. Rao, as a seat for the advancement of women's education and uplift in this predominantly agricultural and backward belt of the state. Smt. Rao was the first Principal of this institution and was succeeded by Smt. Preeti Gupta, who became an institution in the field of women's education and uplift. This is the first college in the Murshidabad district to be accredited by NAAC, UGC in 2004 and to be assessed according to the new nine-point gradation system. It has been accredited with a B grade with 72% marks.
The sole only-women's college in the Murshidabad district BGC is located in the heart of Berhampore town. The college has a sprawling 10 acres campus. A pretty flower garden sits in the front driveway, a huge playground stretches out from the main building to the staff quarters at the southern end of the campus. The building is fringed by groves of tropical trees, which add a sylvan charm to the place. The main building is a three storied spacious structure with wide corridors connecting the different departments housed in separate wings. In the well of the house stands a quaint open-air stage adding to the picturesque setting. The pristine atmosphere makes learning a gratifying experience.
