Welcome to Namrup College, one of the premier institutions of higher education in the easternmost part of Assam. The college was established in 1973 to cater to the needs of higher education of the entire industrial township as well as the neighboring tea gardens and villages. The college endeavors to create a congenial educational environment and encourage the students for quality improvement, handwork, social awareness, and protection of the environment. 

          Namrup, which grew up as an industrial township in the middle of the twentieth century has historical importance too. This is the second place, in which the legendary Ahom king Syu-Ka-Pha landed when he entered the Brahmaputra Valley in 1228 A.D. after crossing the Patkai Mountain Ranges. The word Namrup comes from the Tai word "Nam-ruk" ('Nam=Water, Ruk =six') meaning a place surrounded by six streams. The streams are Kakojan, Labankulajan, Naharpungjan, Abhayapurjan, Hapjan, and Disang. This was the place where political conspirators were deported by the Ahom kings. 

         The college is located near the industrial township of Namrup which has three industrial establishments, viz. Brahmaputra Valley Fertilizer Corporation Limited, Assam Petrochemicals Ltd, and Namrup Thermal Power Station. This township is surrounded by a large number of tea gardens and villages. The college is situated at a distance of 70 km from Dibrugarh Airport, 3 km from Namrup Railway Station, and 2.5 km from the Public Bus Station. 

        The College was started with the faculties of Arts and Science. It was affiliated with Dibrugarh University in September 1979. The Arts stream came under the Deficit Grants-in-aid system in 1986; and the science stream came under the same in 1992. After a prolonged struggle, it qualified itself for inclusion under section 2(f) of the UGC Act, 1956 on 14th February 1997 and section 12(B) of the same Act on 4th April 2000.

It has made a mark in its history when it got itself duly assessed and accredited by NAAC in 2004 and 2011 with Grade C++ at institutional score 68.90 and Grade-B at CGPA-2.27 respectively.
