Naogaon Government College, also known as Naogaon University College, was first planned in 1959. In that time the Administrator Mr. Abdul Baten established the foundation at the north-east part of Naogaon. It was workable at the time of Abdur Rob Chawdhory. In 1962 with the help of some local people of Naogaon, a degree college was established with 3 years graduation courses. But the student could not accept it. As a result, it was neglected and after some days the HSC Course was also started. In 1980, Naogaon Government College was nationalized. Now it is Naogaon Government College.
