About Bishop College, Kolkata

Bishop’s college was founded by the first Anglican Bishop of Calcutta, Bishop Thomas Middleton on 15th December 1820 at Sibpur, on a site next to the Botanical Gardens by the side of Hoogly river. The original buildings still survive as part of the Bengal Engineering and Science University. It was originally intended to serve as an Arts College, as well as for the training of ndian Christians for the priesthood, and as catechists and teachers in Christian Colleges and Schools.
