About

Indraprastha College for Women was founded in 1924 and is the oldest women’s college of the University of Delhi. It began with three students, in a room on the second floor of an old, now heritage, mansion housing the Indraprastha Girls’ Senior Secondary School, in Chippiwara in the Jama Masjid area of Chandani Chowk,in the walled city of Old Delhi. Degree courses were introduced in 1930s , and in 1938 the University recognized Indraprastha College as a degree college. After some years, the college moved to Chandrawali Bhawan in Civil Lines, and was moved again to ‘Alipore house’ at Alipure road(now Sham Nath Marg) to the office - cum -residence of the British Commander-in-Chief in 1938 where it exist until today. 

The parent school and the College both grew out of the efforts of a group of Philanthropists associated with the Theosophical society of India. They were inspired by Mrs. Annie Besant, also a theosophist, who believed in and promoted education for women in north India, at a time when women were confined to the home and realized their destiny in marriage and motherhood. The vision of the College intensified over the decades, and remains focused on the holistic development and empowerment of women.

The College has intersected the National Movement, the Education Reforms Movement, and the Women’s Movement, and is itself a movement today. It has a glorious tradition of academics and service which has only grown over the years. Housed in a beautiful building, on a green campus spread over 14.5 acres, the College building was accorded heritage status in 2002.The College is a milestone in the heritage walk of colonial Delhi. As the College marches towards its centenary, it has added to its academics and infrastructural resources, always mindful of its core vision to empower and mainstream the marginalized.
