Lakshmibai College About
Lakshmibai College, one of the premier institutions of higher education for women, was founded in 1965 as Women’s college. Later, it was named Lakshmibai College in memory of Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi, the great warrior, patriot and freedom fighter whose majestic and lifelike statue adorns the lawns of the college. It is a constituent college of the University of Delhi. The college has its own well- equipped building, sprawling lawns, and sports grounds and staff quarters. It has a locational advantage as it is in close proximity to the University of Delhi. The lush Ashoka Gardens, right in front of the college add to the ecological environment of the college.
