Sri Guru Angad Dev College Khadur Sahib, located in Tarn Taran Distt. of Punjab, was established in 1970 under the able guidance and visionary management of Sant Baba Uttam Singh Ji, the then head of Kaar Sewa (Voluntarily working Socio-Religious organization) Khadur Sahib. The objective of the College was to improve literacy in the remote and backward villages by imparting education to the students who suffered a severe geographical disadvantage in terms of higher education as the existing colleges were far away and out of reach for them. As a consequence, they did not endeavor to seek higher education. This was even more significant in case of girl students. Thus, the state of higher education in the region was very worrisome. Presently, under the divine patronage of Baba Sewa Singh, the head of Kaar Sewa Khadur Sahib and the Padam Shree Awardee for his commendable service in the area of Environment Consciousness and Afforestation spree, the College is marking a commanding presence in the area of higher education in the Majha region of Punjab. The very soil of Khadur Sahib is blessed. Eight Sikh Gurus have treaded on it and sanctified it with their holy presence. The historical significance of this town also lies in the fact that Sri Guru Angad Dev, second Guru of Sikhs, standardized the Gurmukhi script during his abode here. Guru ji also stressed upon combatting social evil like drug addiction and enhanced sports spirit among youth.
In its initial years, the College offered only the Humanity subjects for under graduate classes but currently under the farsightedness of great visionary Baba Sewa Singh Ji, the College has started various new under graduate and post graduate courses and a number of various diploma courses to meet the demands of this competitive world. Presently, the College is running M.A.-Punjabi, M.sc-I.T. and PGDCA at the post graduate level and B.Sc-Computer Science, B.Sc- Non Medical, B.Sc- Economics, B.Sc-I.T., BCA, BBA, B.Com along with B.A. classes at the undergraduate level.

This hostel provides safe, secure and highly subsidized boarding amenities to girl students hailing from far flung areas. Similarly, hostel facilities are available for boys also.
