Ranchi University is a university in Jharkhand state of India. It was established on 12 July 1960 as a teaching-cum-affiliating university, and its first vice chancellor was Vishnudeo Narayan Singh. It is headquartered in Ranchi, the capital city of Jharkhand.

The university has a total student intake of around 90,000 students from its affiliated colleges. It has a central library with approximately 150,000 books for the academic needs of the students. There are a total of two male hostels and four female hostels in the university campus situated at Kutchery Road, Ranchi. The university is financially dependent on UGC funds (Rs. 38 crores annually) in addition to the fees paid by the students.[1]

At present, the University spans five districts of Jharkhand, namely, Ranchi, Gumla, Khunti, Simdega and Lohardaga. Right since its inception Ranchi University has been alive to the ever increasing demands of higher education.although there remains a lot of scope for improving the standards of education at the university. Keeping apace with changing times, the University today offers vocational courses. For the less privileged students coming from the scheduled tribes or scheduled castes, special coaching classes are engaged to prepare them for competitive examinations.

The syllabi for mainstream courses in science, humanities and commerce too have been upgraded to meet the requirements of University Grants Commission (UGC).

The current acting Vice-Chancellor of Ranchi University is R. K. Pandey.[2]

Bifurcation of the University[edit]

In 1992, university was bifurcated to create Vinoba Bhave University, reducing its area by nearly half for proper administration. In 2009 university was divided twice – in January to create Nilamber Pitamber University, at Medininagar, and in August 2009 to create Kolhan University,[3] at Chaibasa.[4]
