Elphinstone College occupies a unique position in the annals of education in the country. It is one of the rarest institutions, born even before the University of Mumbai, to which it was later on affiliated.
Recently the Elphinstone College has been accredited â€˜Aâ€™ grade by NAAC (National Assessment & Accreditation Council). The report submitted by the Peer Team appreciates the efforts taken by its teachers to maintain a student friendly atmosphere & brilliant results.
The institution is known for its open access to students from all strata of the society. This includes various communities, income groups and interests. It is one of the few colleges in Mumbai with an extensive hostel facility for both boys and girls. Located within a walking range from the College and overlooking the Marine Drive, the hostel is certainly among the unique strengths of the College.
The College has an enviable location, which is also historically significant. The building of the College, with its gothic architecture, has been classified as a grade I Heritage structure. It has recently been restored by the Kala Ghoda Association and the college has regained its luminous look. It stands out like a pearl as night falls. The Elphinstone College was awarded Asia-Pacific Heritage Award for Culture Heritage Conservation, in 2004 by UNESCO for the one of the best Heritage buildings restored.
