H.N. Bahuguna Garhwal University and its extended family of all associated colleges. This felt need for having an emotional boundary with all those who have walked the same corridors, sat in the same classes and dreamt of the same colorful future was felt so strongly by group of alumnus from the university that the website became inevitable. This is wholly private and absolutely free of cost effort for reaching out globally to all those who have warm feeling for their Alma mater. We would like to clarify at this stage that this website is just a facilitating medium and not an official website of the university or any alumnus society of the university.In the present context, all the ex-students of any educational institution are becoming a very potent tool for the resurrection of their alma mater. For bringing such alumni of the great university through its Message Board, Scholars Forum, Guest Book,Sponsors etc., the website becomes a common platform and a starting point for a movement to take our dear university to the exalted heights which it rightly deserves.

Of late, Srinagar has strongly emerged as a centre of higher learning and research with the establishment of the University. The Garhwal University was established on 1st December 1973 at Srinagar to meet the increasing demand for higher educational facilities in the intereior of the Garhwal division. Shri Bhishwambar Dutt Bhatt, a distinguished educationist, was appointed the first Vice Chancellor of the University. The University was set up in the interiors of Garhwal rather than in a large city as it is the case with most of our Universities. Late Shri Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna played a vital role in its formation. Taking the University to the people and not vice-versa was a new experience in 1973, when it was finally decided to set up the Garhwal University along the banks of the river Alaknanda at Srinagar. The University was renamed in 1988 as Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna Garhwal University. It was befitting tribute to the man who struggled, all his life for the development of the hills.
