About Us


Situated on the fringe of a great lake, Government Hamidia Arts & Commerce College, Bhopal, holds within its folds a spectacular combination of activities related
to academics and research, games and sports, art and culture. Life never stops in Hamidia College and nowhere else is Nature so pristine. Surrounded by innumerable and rare species of age-old trees that offer shelter to a large variety of birds, the majestic heritage building has come to be recognized as a symbol and hub for academic and extra-academic activities. The establishment of the college in 1946 broke the impasse of limited school education during the Nawabi rule of Bhopal. This is the oldest and the most prestigious institution of the city that had been imparting higher education in the faculties of Arts and Commerce.


Nurtured by tradition and pampered by natural beauty of its own, the college has made tremendous strides in the fields of education, sports, art, culture etc. With a
heritage spanning over 67 years, the college can boast of a number of its old students who have reached great heights as being a part of this institution. Some of the eminent personalities are Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma, former President of India; Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh; Shri Aziz Qureshi, Governor Uttrakhand; Shri O.N. Shrivastava, former Governor of Manipur; Smt. Najma Heputullah, former Chairperson Rajya Sabha; Smt.
