The College

The College was founded by Model Town Society in 1970 and started in the building of Model Town School. After the School was nationalized in 1972, the college was shifted to a rented building.

On demand of the residents of Model Town and the college administration to have proper building for the higher education institution, the Government of the Punjab reserved a piece of land measuring over 55 Kanals for Government Model College in Model Town Extension Scheme, M-Block, Lahore. The government constructed the building of the college in 1986. This double story building comprised classrooms, science laboratories, library, administration block and playgrounds.

In November 1995, Education Department, Government of the Punjab, in recognition of the services rendered by Govt College Model Town in the field of education and considering the needs of the area upgraded the college from Intermediate to Degree. The Government also granted permission to start computer classes at Intermediate and Degree level.

In 2005, a beautiful, spacious 3-storey new building was constructed which comprises 16 rooms, 4 laboratories, conference room and offices for senior faculty. Some new buildings and more expansion plans are on the cards in the near future. During the last seven years, the college has achieved outstanding results and positions in the academic and co-curricular fields. It has turned out to be a much-disciplined institution.

In 2020, three BS programs (Mathematics, English, BBA) in affiliation with University of the Punjab, Lahore were launched as token of recognition for the input given by the faculty and the college administration. Hence in 2021, the college was renamed as Govt. Graduate College, Model Town, Lahore.
