IGNOU Regional Centre, Itanagar was established in 2000 in deference to IGNOU’s broader philosophy of democratizing higher education and reaching the unreached. The Regional Centre was established under the North East Project. The project itself mandates establishments of study centres in the far flung areas of the north eastern part of the country to provide quality and cost effective education to the people of the region.

Located at Naharlagun, in Arunachal Pradesh, about 420 km from Guwahati and 14 km from Itanagar, the Regional Centre had a very humble beginning in November 2000. The Centre began its operations from two rented rooms. Since then the facilities were shifted to an adjacent plot of land where the office space was increased. Today the Regional Centre has a fully functional computer laboratory and facilities for conducting workshops and teleconferencing sessions through Sattelite Interactive Terminals. The Centre is easily accessible being located on the highway connecting Banderdewa, the gateway to Arunachal Pradesh, to Itanagar.
