At the outset, I on behalf of Doomdooma College family welcome you to this premier institution of higher education.

Right from its inception the college has held the pride in disseminating knowledge and skills to the learners of this culturally vibrant area, which comprises of different ethnic groups. The college presently has an enrollment of around 3000 students in HS & Degree section in Arts, Commerce & Science streams. The College has introduced various professional and career-oriented courses along with the traditional degree courses in three streams Arts, Commerce & Science. The study centers of Krishna Kanta Handiqui State Open University (KKHSOU) and Dibrugarh University Open and Distance Learning (DODL) offer diverse post-graduate, Undergraduate and Career Oriented programmes.
The college has very good and modernized infrastructure with sophisticated administrative building and conference hall, well-equipped Science Laboratories, Computer Laboratory, Language Laboratory, Educational & Psychological Laboratory, Digital Classrooms, a multi-purpose Play Ground, Handball, Badminton & Basketball Courts, Multi-Gym (Fitness Hub), Spacious Auditorium (Kallol), Canteen, Botanical Garden, Historical & Cultural Museum, Hostels for both Boys& Girls.

The state of art Central Library of the college with 30,000 books and a good number of magazines, newspapers and journals, Digital Lounge, Book Bank, Mini Conference Room etc. provide another dimension in the academic support to the students. Through N-List programme students and faculty members can search more than 100 national and international journals. The college family offers sincere thanks to the Govt. of Assam for its financial support in enriching the library. The college is committed to its vision and mission in all its endeavours and seeks to materialise into reality the great concept of accomplishment through knowledge “Gyane Parisamapyate”.
The college is preparing for inviting NAAC peer team for the third cycle of accreditation. From the academic session 2019-20, Dibrugarh University implements Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) in the Under Graduate Academic Programmes. There is no denying the fact that CBCS will really be a herculean task for a rural college like us with huge enrollment. Nevertheless, we hope, we will be able to cope with the challenging situation with the help and support of the stakeholders and well-wishers. The faculty members of the college have started e-classes in the form of audio/video classes, home assignment and study materials from the academic session 2019-20. It really helps our students to keep in touch with the academic activities during Covid-2019 pandemic.
