Rajshahi University is the second largest University in Bangladesh and is the highest abode of learning in the Northern region of Bangladesh. The Northern areas of the country were comparatively lagging behind in higher education since the University of Dhaka, then the only of its kind in the country, was far away and was not very easily accessible to the student of this part. Thus the necessity of a University in the Northern part of the country was felt and Rajshahi University Act 1953 (East Bengal Act XV of 1953) was passed by the East Pakistan Provincial Assembly on March 31, 1953. The land area ( 300 hectares) of the University is one of the largest of it's kind in the country. It locates at a pastoral setting of Motihar close to the city of Rajshahi
