LOCATION: The new college campus at Salem Veng, Mualpui is just a short distance downhill from Rajiv Gandhi Stadium on the outskirts of Aizawl. The area is approximately 12471.50 square miles or 9.32 bighas.
INAUGURATION: On the 26th February 2018, the Chief Minister of Mizoram Pu Lal Thanhawla inaugurated the new Commerce building at Mualpui. At the same function, the Minister for Higher and Technical Education, Pu R. Romawia formally opened the new Cafeteria and Students’ Common Room.
FIRST STAGE OF TRANSFER : Classes for the Commerce stream and the 4th semester began at the new campus from the 8th March 2021 and continued till the Covid-19 pandemic caused a fresh closure of all educational institutions on the orders of the Govt. of Mizoram since mid April. Construction on the Arts Block is still ongoing, especially on the proposed library and administrative rooms. All Commerce classes have been shifted to the new campus, along with the 4th semester Arts classes, and accommodated in the Commerce building. The cafeteria is also functioning and serving wholesome nutrition to all faculty and students at the campus.
BRIEF HISTORY OF ITS ACQUISITION : Keeping in view the fact that the college did not have a permanent site and that its present location within residential quarters was too restricted for the establishment of a large, well-developed campus, on the 26th June 2009, student leaders met with the Chief Minister of Mizoram with the intention of acquiring the land around the Speaker's bungalow for extension of the college campus. As this was not possible, the Chief Minister advised the students to search for an alternative plot of land within Aizawl city, vide letter No. B. 160 13/4/2007EDC/16 dated March 2010. Subsequently, Aizawl College Teachers' Association (ACTA) leaders pursued the case by arranging a meeting with the then Minister-in-charge on the 15th September, enquiring about available land. The Minister arranged a meeting on the 5th October 2010 in his office chamber, attended by the Director, Higher & Technical Education, the Joint Secretary, college Principal and ACTA members. The Minister then announced that a plot of land which had been previously earmarked for Govt. Zirtiri Residential Science College at Salem Veng, Mualpui, would be given to Govt. Aizawl College by free allotment.
Since there were three privately owned plots of land within the aforementioned land, efforts were made time and again to settle the issue. After lengthy negotiations, an agreement was reached on the 30th September 2011 between the concerned parties, and the college finally acquired the land with land lease No. DLL 24 dated April the 23rd 2012. According to the agreement, the land would be leased for twenty five years, with a provision for it to be leased for ninety nine years.
Despite unfortunate circumstances with neighbouring land owners leading to legal wrangles, the college has the full support of the Govt. of Mizoram.
