The Government of West Bengal through an Act of the Legislative Assembly has passed West Bengal Act XXVIII,2007 implementing a long-standing public demand in creating the university named West Bengal State University at Barasat, North 24 Paraganas. This became functional from the academic session 2008–09. On 26 May 2008, there were 63 colleges formerly affiliated with the University of Calcutta. They were, through a government notification (No.300-Edn(U)/ IU-38/08), transferred to this new university. The University began functioning under its first Vice-Chancellor Professor Ashoke Ranjan Thakur, the erstwhile Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Jadavpur University.


The campus is now being constructed at Berunanpukuria and the university operates from there. All the 30 postgraduate course classes have started from 2008. The girls' hostel is in the process of being completed. The boys' hostel will open soon. The academic building and the administrative building are almost ready.
