Keshav Mahavidyalaya (Hindi: केशव महाविद्यालय), also known as KMV/Keshav College, is one of the colleges of Delhi University outside the North and South campuses, in the northwest residential area of Pitam Pura.

Keshav Mahavidyalaya was established by the Government of Delhi in August 1994.[1] When the college was established, its campus was a school building in the northwest residential area of Keshav Puram. The college admits only undergraduates and awards degrees under the purview of the University of Delhi.

The foundation stone of the new campus building was laid by former Chief Minister of Delhi, Smt. Shiela Dixit on 23 March 2003. The campus building was inaugurated by former Lt. Governor B.L. Joshi on 27 November 2005. The students began to be admitted from the academic session of 2006-07 with inclusion of new courses like Maths (H), Psychology (H) and BBS.
