The today’s Government Degree College was established as inter college in the student hostel of the then Govt High School Hangu now Government High School no. 1 Hangu deprived of all sorts of facilities in 1973. The principal and the faculty tried their level best to impart quality education and inculcated the spirit of patriotism with particular emphasis on education and character building. Consequently, people of the area were attracted to quench their thirst for knowledge and the present building could not accommodate the students. So a building of its own became a dire need of the institution which was constructed by the then Government of NWFP, some two kilometres away from the main bazar Hangu on Thall road in attractive and picturesque natural surroundings. The majestic and magnificent hills of the area visible from the college in various directions add elegance and grace to the college environment. The surroundings of the college are almost free from noise and all kinds of pollution, thus offering clean, natural, healthy and health giving environment to the students, the most favourable and conducive for studies. Till 1982 the college was catering educational services only up to intermediate level but with the passage of time it proved itself to be upgraded. So in 1982 it was upgraded to degree level.
