The General Education centre is the nucleus of most of the extra-curricular activities and caters to the  cultural environment. This centre organises these activities through its various clubs viz., the AMU  Drama Club, The Hindustani and Western Music Club, the Literary Club,Eco-Club and the Hobbies  Workshop etc.

The university grew out of the work of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, the great Muslim reformer and states-  man, who in the aftermath of the Indian War of Independence of 1857 felt that it was important for  Muslims to gain education and become involved in the public life and government services in India.  Raja Jai Kishan helped Sir Syed in establishing the university.

The intense desire to ameliorate the social conditions of Indian Muslims led Sir Syed to publish the periodical, 'Tehzibul Akhlaq' .

In 1877, Sir Syed founded the Muhammadan Anglo Oriental College in Aligarh and patterned the college after Oxford and Cambridge universities.

His objective was to build a college in tune with the British education system but without compromising its Islamic values. It was one of the first purely residential educational institutions set up either by  the government or the public in India. When viceroy to India Lord Curzon visited the college in 1901,  he praised the work which was carried on and called it of "sovereign importance".

The college was originally affiliated with the University of Calcutta and subsequently got affiliated  with the university of Allahabad in 1885. By 1920 the college was transformed into the Aligarh Muslim   University.
