Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee’s Guru Nanak Khalsa College of Arts, Science and Commerce is among the earliest institutions of higher learning that emerged on the educational landscape of the erstwhile city of Bombay. Situated in the heart of the city, yet in peaceful seclusion, amidst idyllic centres of learning, the college has a majestic and aesthetically-designed structure and a verdant ambiance. It strives to create an atmosphere conducive to the pursuit of higher learning. The College is one of Mumbai’s old colleges; it is permanently affiliated to the University of Mumbai and was accorded the UGC recognition under 2f in 1974.

Its financial status is grant-in-aid.
