The Batticaloa University College was established on 1 of August 1981 to fill a long felt need for the development of a Higher Educational Institution in the Eastern Province, Sri Lanka. This College began with two faculties: the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Agriculture. Both the faculties were affiliated to the University of Peradeniya. In 1986 this University College was elevated to the status of a University under the name of Eastern University, Sri Lanka.
The Eastern University, Sri Lanka was established on 1 of October 1986 by a University order dated 26 of September 1986 issued under section 2 of the Universities Act No. 16 of 1978.

The Faculty of Cultural Studies was then expanded and renamed as the Faculty of Arts and Culture in 1991.
