The college was established in the year 1960 as ‘City Law and Arts College’. In 1966, it formed its own identity as City Arts College. In 1976, it received a huge donation from the C. U. Shah family and was named as C. U. Shah Arts College. This co-ed. morning college with a three-storeyed building is known for its insistence on quality education and observing strict standards in matters of discipline and regular attendance.
One of the remarkable features of the college which marks it out, is its commitment to fulfilling the aspirations of students for upward mobility since most of them come from the lower and middle socio-economic strata of society. They also make up a uniquely rich and varied linguo-cultural group.
Persevering to bring out the best in each student, the college has never let limitations of resources come in the way of progress and achievements. It has always believed in lighting a candle rather than cursing the darkness.
