Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) is one of the oldest premier Central Universities of India with a
unique and rich culture of its own. It owes its existence to the selfless and untiring efforts of the
great visionary SIR SYED AHMAD KHAN. Deeply moved by the socio-economic and educational
plight of his community after the First War of Independence of 1857, he was quick to realize that
the panacea for these ills lay in inculcating the spirit of free enquiry and modernism in the
community.His exposure to the British Universities, particularly those at Oxford and Cambridge,
and their public schools, inspired him with a new vision of a harmonious pattern of culture,
combining the best elements in the cultures of the East with the arts and sciences of the West. In
1875 he founded a High School at Aligarh, which, within three years, was raised to a College
known as Mohammadan Anglo Oriental College which metamorphosed into Aligarh Muslim
University in 1920 through an Act of Parliament.
Due attention was also paid to the education of girls. In 1942 the Muslim Girls’ School was raised
to the status of a full-fledged Degree College for Women. Since 1951 it is one of the several
institutions maintained by Aligarh Muslim University. Undergraduate women students in the
Faculties of Agricultural Sciences, Arts, Commerce, Life Sciences, Science and Social Sciences
receive instructions in the Women’s College.
Students are normally allocated a Hall of Residence at the time of admission. A Hall of Residence
is a cluster of hostels administered by a Provost. Facilities such as Reading Room, Common
Room, indoor and outdoor games are available in almost all Halls of Residence.
It is important to note that in view of the limited hostel accommodation, the candidates should
clearly understand that the grant of admission to a full-time course of study in the University would
not ensure allotment of hostel accommodation. Accommodation to students allocated a Hall of
Residence will be provided as per the policy / rules laid down by the University, subject to the
availability of seats in the hostel. Candidates admitted to Evening / Part Time and courses under
Centre of Professional Courses shall not be provided hostel accommodation.
