The origin of the College goes as far back as 1817 when Maharaja Tej Chand founded an anglo-vernacular school within the premises of his palace at Burdwan. It was extended and renamed High English School by Maharaja Mahatab Chand in 1854. Inspite of Bengal renaissance slowly transforming the social fabric, Burdwan remained rather indifferent to higher English education until Aftab Chand became the Maharaja of Burdwan 1881. In the same year, he shifted the school to Natunganj and introduced Liberal Arts courses in accordance with the permission of the University of Calcutta and christened the new unit Maharajas College. The school became eventually named Raj Collegiate School and the College Burdwan Raj College.Since then, the progress of the College was steady as well as remarkable. Among the major incidents of its history, mention may be made of its transfer to Aftab House in 1941. Aftab House stands in the north-west corner of the picturesque Shyamsayar at a distance of about one kilometre from Burdwan Railway Station. Its campus measures 13 acres and is almost contiguous to that of the University of Burdwan.The royal patronage of Burdwan Raj College was taken over by the Government of West Bengal in 1956 under the sponsoring scheme and finally its necessary parting from the University of Calcutta became effective. Eventually, Burdwan Raj College was affiliated to the University of Burdwan in 1960.
