Welcome to Government College University Lahore, the leading educational institution in the Indo-Pak Subcontinent, where excellence is nurtured, pursued and celebrated since it’s inception in 1864. In its 151st year of existence this institution is cognisant of the national importance of enrolment in higher education while retaining its legacy by being supportive to social, academic and research community. Our university’s values underpin our vision and mission, and are integral to guiding the implementation of our strategy towards teaching, learning and research.
