Hindu College had a humble beginning. It was first housed in a small building in Kinari Bazar, Chandni Chowk. One of the first boys on its rolls was Sir Shri Ram who later became the Chairman of the College Governing Body. In 1902, Punjab University threatened to disaffiliate Hindu College unless it acquired a proper building of its own.s In this crisis, Rai Bahadur Lala Sultan Singh came to the rescue of the College and donated a part of his historic property at Kashmiri Gate, which was originally owned by Col Skinner. The College moved to its present campus in 1953.
Hindu College was a centre for intellectual debate during India's Freedom Struggle, especially during the Quit India Movement In fact the College remained closed for several months in 1942 responding to Gandhiji's call to students and teachers to join the Movement. Its amphitheatre at Kashmiri Gate attracted famous leaders like Lokmanya Tilak, Annie Besant, Mahatma Gandhi, Pt. Madan Mohan Malviya, Sarojini Naidu, Mohammed All Jinnah, Motilal Nehru, JawaharLal Nehru and others.
Hindu College has seen enviable growth over the years Today it is not only one of the most distinguished post-graduate co-educational institutions of the country but is also, by many accounts, the College of first choice of Delhi.
