The earliest settlement at the site of Sangrur is believed to have begun around 2,300 B.C. Attracted by the fertile soil and availability of water, people from Sindh and Balochistan started moving and following the path of the Satluj or the Ghagger settled at Rohira. They started living in thatched huts on the virgin soil, before long they started building houses of sub-dried bricks. By about 2,000 B.C, a new set of people is believed to have settled at the site. Their pottery was more Surdy and their equipment superior. The houses were well laid out and were fairly spacious. Sangrur is said to have been founded by one Sanghu, a Jat, about four hundred years back.
The district of Sangrur was formed in 1948.
Govt. Ranbir College Sangrur was established in 1939 as Inter College with the courtesy of Sidhu Jat ruler of Jind, Maharaja Ranbir Singh on the occasion of his golden jubilee. In 1943, the college became Degree College. Maharaja Ranbir Singh was not only an able administrator but also an intellectual person and the lover of education. Therefore, he had special interest towards the development of academic institutions. A college house situated in front of Sh. Kali Devi Temple outside Patiala Gate was exclusively demarcated for the residence of the Principal. The college has been providing education to the students of the region for a very long time and this crusade for higher education still continues.
