149 Years of GC University Lahore


Government College University, Lahore (formerly Government College, abbreviated to GCU) is a co-ed public university located in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. Although the college was granted university status by the Government of Pakistan in 2002, the word college is retained in its title for historical reasons and because of the wide recognition of the name Government College in the country.
GCU is located in The Mall area of Lahore. It is organised into four faculties – Science and Technology; Arts and Social Sciences; Languages, Islamic and Oriental Learning; and Engineering – within which there are 29 academic departments. There are also four research centres and institutes associated with the university.[2] GCU currently has more than 7,000 students and over 400 faculty members.[1]
The university was ranked 2nd amongst medium-sized multi-faculty universities by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan in 2012.[3] There are also two Nobel Laureates amongst the university’s alumni and former staff. Alumni of GCU are called Ravians which is derived from the name of the magazine “Ravi”, published by the administration of the college; the magazine name is inspired by the Ravi River.
