The college was established in 1957, during the Pakistani ruling period, with the patronage of local educators and social workers. Classes were held at the West End High School and afterwards at Dhaka College. In 1970, college activities were moved to their own premises in Road 2 of the Dhanmondi residential area.[3] Prior to this, it was known as "Dhaka Night College."

Khan Bahadur Abdur Rahman and Ataur Rahman Khan, both former prime ministers of Bangladesh, contributed significantly to the college's establishment.[4] Khaney Alom Khan, former chairman of the college's governing body, arranged financial assistance for the development of the academic buildings while he was the divisional commissioner of Dhaka Division.
