The Court of Directors of the East India Company sent a despatch in July, 1854 to the Governor-General of India in Council, suggesting the establishment of the Universities of Calcutta, Madras and Bombay. In pursuance of that despatch, the University of Calcutta was founded on JANUARY 24, 1857. The University adopted in the first instance, the pattern of the University of London and gradually introduced modifications in its constitution. The striking contrast between the great importance attached to the University and the paucity of arrangements to run it soon became evident. Efforts were on to provide the institution with a separate building of its own. Persistent efforts ultimately bore fruit. A site was selected to the west of the College Street, facing the tank, in between the Presidency and the Medical Colleges.
