About Institution

Dayanand College, Hisar is a 65 years old, Re-Accredited as ’A’ Grade institution by NAAC, Bengaluru in November 2016. The temple of learning is a nursery of higher education. The college owes its existence to the vision and missionary zeal of Lala Gian Chand Mahajan (later venerated as Swami Munishwaranand) who was a teacher by profession, a social crusader by inclination, and a saint by temperament. Swamiji was helped in his crusade by a galaxy of philanthropists and missionaries. The college is a multi-faculty, co-educational government-aided institution affiliated to Kurukshetra University,Kurukshetra. Founded in the historical city of Hisar in 1950, the college was taken over by the DAV College Managing Committee, New Delhi in 1962.

The emergence of this seat of learning marked a new era in this educationally and culturally obscure land even after independence. It was a dust bowl, a dry, dreary and dismal darkness. The opening of a college here was thus like creating oasis in the desert.

The college is situated on two campuses, occupying a total  land area of about 28 acres out of which 4 acres of land is for the college complex and 24 acres of land is harnessed for creating facilities like hostels, staff quarters and sports ground and indoor sports complex.
