The College is situated in Falakata, about 1 k.m. away from the National Highway 31.

The campus is unique for its spacious green forest situated behind the new building. The College has a friendly and congenial ambience for teaching and learning.
Under the British Rule Falakata was a Sub-divisional town but after independence, the centre of gravity has been shifted to Alipurduar. As a result, the old glory of Falakata decreased day by day. Surrounded by tea gardens and forests, far away from both the District town Jalpaiguri and Sub-divisional town Alipurduar, the people of Falakata found it very difficult to keep in touch with higher Education. It was an agriculture based area majority of the maximum number of population belonged to backward scheduled class and scheduled tribes. Though the students were eager to get them admitted into Colleges but it was beyond their capacity. Hence, the need for establishing a College was felt. As a result, Falakata College was born on 19th September, 1981. Later the College had been included under section (on) 28.05.1988. 2(f) 12(b) of the UGC Act.
The tiny sapling of 1981 is now young flourishing tree which has seen 29 springs in its life and is now meting out education to thousand of students every year. One can’t but be amazed at the growth of the institution looking back to the year 1981 when it started functioning with 50/60 students on the roll.
