Saint Patrick's College or St. Patrick's College is a Catholic education institute located in Karachi, Pakistan affiliated with the University of Karachi. It is located alongside St Patrick's High School, Karachi. It was established in 1952.[1] by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Karachi.

Saint Patrick's College is a co-educational institution offering courses leading to the Intermediate certificate of education[2] and baccalaureate degrees from the University of Karachi. In 1972 it was nationalized by the Government of Pakistan.[3]

In 2005 it was returned to the Catholic Board of Education.[4] The denationalization was opposed by the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association and Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal who claimed it would result in doors being closed to students from poor- and middle-class families.[5]
