The lush green campus spreading in 7 acres of land is situated at Bhiwani Rohilla, Balsamand Road, Hisar.
It is a twenty minute drive from Hisar covering a distance of 20 km. It has around 36 villages in its periphery and Maharani Lakshmi Bai College is the only college exclusively for girls. The majority of the girls from this area is unable to pursue higher education due to many socio-economic factors applicable to girls for the sake of security and safety. Besides, the inhabitants are mostly small and marginal farmers who cannot afford to send the girls for higher education to a boarding institution.
Maharani Lakshmi Bai College has been established to fill this void. The location of the college facilitates girls from the surrounding areas to pursue higher education as day scholars with all safety and dignity. The institution being within easy reach, parents have no reservations about sending their daughters. The college has also arranged a fleet of buses for their safe plying.
The college has been named after Maharani Lakshmi Bai who continues to motivate women all over the country for her courage and scholarly attitude and aptitude. She was a scholar of Sanskrit and was familiar with English language, besides being a warrior and capable leader.
