History[edit]

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. President Ziaur Rahman made a similar statement concerning establishing a university in Barisalon November 23, 1978, at a rally in Barisal Circuit House.

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. On 22 November 2011, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the construction of building of the university. The educational activities were inaugurated by Minister for education Nurul Islam on 25 January 2012, in a temporary campus in Barisal Zilla School.

Main campus construction is scheduled to finish in 2013 at Karnakati on the eastern bank of the Kirtonkhola river in Sadar upazila. Tk 90 core will be used to construct the university on 50 acres of land, including 12 acres of private and 38 acres public land.
