General Description

Begum Rokeya University, Rangpur named after a legendary woman scholar Begum Rokeya who pioneered and promoted female education in Indo-Pak-Bangla subcontinent, is located in the city of Rangpur, in the north east zone of Bangladesh. With its so-called connotations of impoverishment, deprivation and poverty, Rangpur is a culturally vibrant place an excellent center of arts, culture and education. It prides itself on its rich heritage of numerous contributions and achievements of many scholars, poets, novelists, social and political thinkers and philanthropists. Here are a good number of age-old educational institutions and cultural organizations.

The construction of Begum Rokeya University, Rangpur is still continuing in its own campus on the outskirts of Rangpur in the south. Rangpur, a peaceful and tranquil town, is just a 6 hours drive from the bustling, crowded city of Dhaka. However, it has good transportation facilities train, bus and airlines. It is easily accessible because of its interconnecting transportation routes and linkages between all the districts of the country.

Since 1947, a university in this region has been a long cherished dream. A popular demand for a kind of university which can reach out to a large number of students desiring higher education in this vast region has always been intensely felt but has never been fulfilled. Fortunately, on October 12, 2008 Begum Rokeya University, Rangpur (initially named as Rangpur University) was founded and started its academic activities from the session 2008 2009, following the semester system. Each academic year consists of 2 semesters (one semester lasting for 6 months including holidays and vacations).
