Ewing Christian College (ECC), formerly Allahabad Christian College, is an autonomous college located in Allahabad, India.

The school was established in 1902 by Dr. Arthur Henry Ewing, a prominent Presbyterian missionary, as an initiative of the East India Company. It became one of the premier colleges for excellence in higher education and research in India.[1][2]

ECC is a constituent college of Allahabad University. The college was conferred with the status of College with Potential for Excellence by the University Grants Commission in 2005 and accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC).[3]


The campus is located on the northern bank of the Yamuna river near Sangam on the southern part of Allahabad City. Spread on a sprawling green campus of 42 acres (170,000 m2), the college opened its agricultural economics extension department on the other side of the river, which soon developed into Allahabad Agricultural Institute.


The academic structure is composed of three faculties, the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Science and Faculty of Teacher education, which are subdivided into various departments and eight self-financed centres/departments.
