The school was once called Hunan Provincial First Normal School in 1914 and eventually Hunan First Normal School after the foundation of P.R.C. In March, 2000, under the sanction of the PRC Ministry of Education, it was upgraded to the status of a three-year normal college and then in April, 2008, to the status of a four-year undergraduate-level normal university with the current name.
