The Rabindra Bharati University was established in 1962 to mark the birth centenary of the legendary poet Rabindranath Tagore, who was the first Indian as well as Asian recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature. It is a State University named after Tagore dedicated to the mission of disseminating his thoughts and ideas through humanities, social sciences, art and culture. The Rabindra Bharati University thus features uniqueness in projecting itself as a centre for higher learning in performing arts, fine arts, language, literature and social sciences.

The University also arranges placement sessions with organisations and MNCs, familiarize the students with the market and find themselves a suitable job. The University arranges health workshops with prominent medical centres and hospitals provide students with health awareness, education along with check-ups. The University has a Health Centre with a full-time doctor to attend the sick students (and any staff of the University) in cases of medical emergencies. Besides, the University maintains a vibrant social outreach programme involving students and sometimes faculties, through National Service Scheme. These programmes also give a good exposure to students about social responsibilities and community participation.

. The University has spared no pains in facilitating the government scholarships, stipends and funding for the needy students which include Rajiv Gandhi Fellowship, Indira Gandhi Single Girl Child Fellowship, Maulana Azad Fellowship, Swami Vivekananda merit-cum-means Scholarship, Kanyasree Scholarship, scholarship offered by the National Handicapped Finance and Development Corporation, and many other scholarships. Many students, especially female students, have immensely benefitted from these facilities. The University also looks into their extra-academic requirements by providing them accommodation, especially the female students, in hostels and also arranges financial relief for students in certain extraordinary circumstance. In other words, the University authorities continue to operate relentlessly in providing the maximum facilities to the students.
