About Kanoria

Kanoria Mahila Mahavidyalaya was established on 19th July 1965, under the grant in aid scheme of the Government with UGC Status 2F & 12B by the Late Bhagirath Ji Kanoria, to develop a passion for learning among young women of Rajasthan. The college is affiliated with the University of Rajasthan, Jaipur. From 1993-94, the college began with PG courses and was renamed Kanoria PG Mahila Mahavidyalaya. The college exists in the aesthetic environs of Jawahar Lal Nehru Marg as the first institution of higher education for women through grant-in-aid from the Government of Rajasthan. Later in 2012, the Government of Rajasthan suspended the Grant-in-aid scheme, which made the college a self-financed Institute. Moving forward in its 57 years of luminous journey, the college has emerged as one of the leading institutions in Jaipur and the State of Rajasthan. With a view to impart education, the college aims to disseminate knowledge and facts and emphasize value-based holistic development. Earning a prestigious reputation for harnessing a progressive outlook towards education, the college has introduced new courses at the Undergraduate (UG) and Postgraduate (PG) levels from time to time, along with skill development and career-oriented courses.

The college perceives education as the means of developing one’s most significant abilities because, in each person, there is an aspiring dream and hope that, when fulfilled, can be transformed, benefitting society, and strengthening the Nation. Keeping this in view, the college offers 11 programs at UG and 14 programs at PG level in Arts, Science, Commerce, Fine Arts, Computers, Bio-Technology, Business Administration, Fashion Designing, Media, and Entertainment (with internal choices in every stream), etc. The college had a humble beginning with some 65 Students in 1965 and has now grown into an institution with more than 6700 students, 142 teaching staff members, and 100 support staff members. In addition to the regular programs, Diploma and Certificate Courses are also running successfully in the college.

The state-of-art infrastructure and facilities available on campus are amongst the best. It is a wholly self-contained campus comprising everything students would ever require. The spirit of learning depends on the atmosphere built up around the campus, the zeal carried by the teachers and imparted through facilities like the library, rich in quality books including e-resources, well-maintained laboratories, excellent equipment, spacious seminar rooms, auditorium, study halls, creativity zone, with additional facilities like gymnasium, swimming pool, cafeteria, playground, parking, crèche, and nursery. A well-maintained hostel is also on the college campus, with a capacity to accommodate 350 students. The college is religiously determined to keep pace with environmental sustainability and thus has an extensive solar system for energy conservation, rainwater harvesting structures, composting pits, decomposing machines for waste management, etc.

College idealizes education as a passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. Therefore, the institution has an exceptional brigade of alumni representing the legacy of knowledge and values gained from their journey as college students.
