Popularly known Tejgaon College was primarily founded as Dhaka Night College in the year 1961 in the campus of Islamia High School beside the river Buriganga. The college was framed under the true & sincere effort made by Late Maulana Abul Khair. That time the name of the founder president of the college was the then education minister Mr. Shafiqul Islam. Advocate Bahauddin Ahmed & Advocate Mr. Abul Hossain were included as the members. During their tenure, the teachers used to teach the students with a scarce amount of remuneration, it was just 50 Tk. per month.Many days were passed in the premises of Islamia High School. Then the education minister Mofizuddin shifted its campus in Madrasha-E-Alia in Dhaka.
That continued for another one year & a half. Again the then authority had to look for a new address as a consequence of an untoward/unwanted incidence. That time they could manage to find its address in Tejgaon Polytechnic High School where its Headmaster, Mr. Noor Mohammad played a significant role. That time Mr. M.Q. Roisuddin performed his role as principal & his tenure was from 1963 to 1966. Because of facing various adversities, the authority had to go for a change of its campus from Tejgaon Polytechnic High School to the Crown Laundry, owned by Mr. Asadul Hoque, situated in Tejgaon industrial area. Surprisingly enough, the whole administration of the college again shifted its campus to the crossing road in Farmgate, which is presently known as Al-Razi Hospital. Along with that process, the college was renamed as “Tejgaon College” from its original one “Dhaka Night College”.
