Institute Description

 University of Mumbai was set up in 1857 by John Wilson. In keeping with the town’s name, the University was called University of Bombay. The university was set up by an Act of the Legislative Assembly (approx.) (in the British Era) along with universities in Madras and Calcutta. The university was formally started in 1859. The name University of Mumbai was called so only in 1996 when the name of the town was changed to Mumbai.
