Founded on 23rd September in 1887, the University concerned itself mainly with examinations having no teaching staff (except that of its School of Law) until 1914. Thereafter it established chairs and readerships, etc. for research work in Economics and Modern History for graduate students. In 1904 the university, along with all other existing universities of India, was brought under the fold of Indian Universities Act. In 1921 an act was passed for the re-organization of the University as a unitary teaching and residential institution, with control, however, over the quality and character of the teaching in constituent colleges. The Muir Central College, established in 1872, became the nucleus of a teaching university. In 1955, by a further amendment of the University act, three categories of colleges came into existence: university colleges (which are residential colleges for students of the University or recognized by the University in which tutorial and supplementary instruction is provided); associated colleges (which are also residential but provide full degree courses as distinct from tutorial instruction); and constituent colleges (which are also residential and provide full degree courses but are maintained by the state government). Teachers in all three categories of colleges are appointed by the college management. The University is located in Allahabad which is situated at the confluence of rivers Ganga and Jamuna, 350 miles south-east of Delhi. The University's jurisdiction is within 16 km radius of the Convocation Ground in the Senate Campus. The Parliament passed a bill and the university earned back its Central Status wef 14th July,2005.
