About Us

Govt. College for Women, Guntur formerly known as "Lady Hope College" came into existence in 1944 under the management of Guntur Municipality. This college was established with the aim of providing Higher education for women in general and particularly to those living in Guntur and surrounding districts. This college brought hope and joy into the hearts of millions of ladies all over the state.

The college was bifurcated into Junior College and Degree College in 1996.
