Balochistan has the privilege to house its first Women’s University at Quetta. The need for a Women’s University in Balochistan was felt from many decades, this need was finally realized when the Governor of Balochistan, Mr. Owais Ahmed Ghani , promulgated an Ordinance No. 1 of 2004 to establish the Sardar Bahadur Khan Women’s University at Quetta. On 26th August 2004, Balochistan Provincial Assembly passed The Sardar Bahadur Khan Women’s University Act. The University has been established in Sardar Bahadur Khan Santorium very generously donated by the Pakistan Railways without any compensation. The premises of the University spread over 40 acres. Keys of the building were handed over to the Vice Chancellor on 18 March 2004, the building was witness to a historic transformation where it was given the status of Balochistan's first and Pakistan's third Women's University. From that day onwards, the Sardar Bahadur Khan Women's University of Balochistan has been striving to provide a safe haven to the women of Balochistan and Pakistan who are interested in educational and intellectual pursuits.
