About

Miranda House, residential college for women, is one of the premier Women's Institutions of Delhi University. It was founded in 1948 by the then Vice-Chancellor Sir Maurice Gwyer; its foundation stone was laid by Lady Edwina Mountbatten on March 7 in the same year. Located in the University campus, Miranda House is built in warm red brick with cool and spacious corridors. Its original design was by the renowned architect Walter George, the college shares an architectural affinity with other colonial educational institutions of the country. In the past five decades, as the college has grown, several other buildings have been added to its original design. It is now declared a heritage building and work is on to maintain its pristine glory.

Miranda offers liberal education in humanities and science to more than 2500 students. The faculty is renowned for their meritorious profile, versatile talent and dedication to the cause of education. The college has produced women who have excelled in various professions and have contributed in numerous ways to society at large.

The college has always maintained high academic standards. What is more important is the space it has provided to the students to freely express and develop views that help them respond to changes in society. Its proximity to other campus colleges enables students to participate in the academic and cultural events that take place around it.

The college hostel is amongst the oldest residential buildings of the University. The hostel has recently been renovated under the Heritage Building Project. The hostel section is laid out in a pleasing quadrangle, with gardens paced out by bottle palms. The design allows a spacious privacy within which residents can be as they like. The dining hall is one of the assets of the college with monastic tables and benches set inside a long hall. The stretch of ground curving around the hostel towards the cafeteria has been cleared away for a beautiful lawn and a rockery extending the special attractions of the Cafeteria, particularly on sunny winter days. It has also brought out the potential of the spacious verandah outside one of the classrooms as an elevated stage for cultural events.

  • There are about eighty-three colleges affiliated to the University of Delhi, spread out all over the state. Miranda college is one of them.
  • Miranda House has always encouraged its students to interact and participate in diverse activities outside the classroom.
  • Miranda House started with 33 students in July 1948 and now there are more than 3000 students in college.
  • At the time of founding there were six departments and now there are eighteen departments in the college.
  • The motto of the college is “Dedicated to truth”.
