Rajdhani College, .Bhubaneswar, an affiliated college of Utkal University, Odisha started functioning as the Morning Shift of the B.J,B College, Bhubaneswar in the year 1973 offering Intermediate and Degree Courses in the Arts Stream only. Within a short span of two years, it was able to come out of the shadow of the more pronounced elder institution. The College was shifted temporarily to a Government building located in Unit-1 in Bhubaneswar where it continued to function as an independent institution for fourteen long years from 1975 to 1989.

Considering the steady expansion in the size of the student community and the number of Programmes offered , the College was shifted to a new campus at Baramunda in 1989 with more than 15 acres of land of its own . Since 1989 till date, the College has struggled constantly to move ahead and make its presence visible. As a result, the obscure institution of the yore is now poised to take a big leap forward, thanks to its expert faculty, vibrant academic environment and an aspiring but disciplined student community.

Location of the college is quite fascinating blending , as it were, the contrasting facets of the culturally rich capital city of Bhubaneswar. The very ancient Khandagiri and Udaygiri Caves on the one hand and the very modern AIIMS, SUM Hospital and Biju Patnaik International Airport, on the other are situated within a distance of 5KMs from the college.

Our College got NAAC Accreditation in the year 2006 with B+ Grade in spite of its many infrastructural deficiencies. During the last 25 years, journey of the institution has often been laced with grave challenges yet, it has stood up to them bravely and rather, successfully. The college is a coeducational institution offering Honours teaching facilities for Degree Courses in Arts , Science and Commerce streams. In the Arts stream, teaching facility is extended in subjects like Economics, Education , English, History, Odia, Political Science ,Philosophy ,Sanskrit,& Sociology. In the Science Stream ,there is provision for teaching subjects like Botany, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematics and Zoology upto Honours level. In the Commerce Stream, Honours teaching is imparted in Accounting and Management. Besides, the College provides PG teaching facility in two subjects ; i.e., Education in the Self-financing mode and Odia in the Conventional mode.The main challenge before the college today is infrastructural growth. Provision for a well-equipped laboratory for the Degree students in Science is most urgently required as they are forced to rely on the +2 Science Laboratories in the absence of their own.
