College History
Vidyasagar College for Women as a full fledged separate college affiliated to the University of Calcutta was founded in 1960. However, its history went back to 1931 when a separate womens’ section of the Vidyasagar College was started to cater to the educational requirements of the women folk of Kolkata.

Its classes were held in the morning. The womens’ section was temporarily brought to a stop during the second world war. Since 1947, however, expansion in all branches of its activities took place steadily and regularly. New subjects were introduced and a group of dedicated teachers inspired confidence among the students who enrolled in large numbers. Since its foundation in 1960, Vidyasagar College for Women committed itself to carry forward the ideals and principles of Pundit Iswar Chandra Vidyasagar, the great educationist and social reformer of the 19th century. At present the college consists of three campuses.
A. Main Campus
The main campus functional since 1960 located at 39 Sankar Ghosh Lane, Kolkata 700 006 (hereafter referred to as the Main Campus) comprises of ……acres of land and …. sq. ft/sq. m of total builtup area. Divided in three parts this campus house the Principal’s chamber, Administrative Offices, Professors’ room, Laboratories, Computer room, Class rooms, students’ union room and common room and accommodation for Darwans and Sweepers.
