Demand for a university was first made in 1960 before the independence of Bangaladesh. In 1973, then-Prime Minister Sheikh Mujibur Rahman declared he wished to establish a university in Barisal during a rally held in the city.

After three decades, following strong demand from the people of Barisal, the proposal was passed in ECNEC on November 29, 2008, by then Caretaker Government.

The educational activities were inaugurated by Minister for education Nurul Islam on 25 January 2012, in a temporary campus in Barisal Zilla School.
