Arignar Anna Govt. Arts College, Villupuram is a Government Higher Education Institution, managed by the Director of Collegiate Education, Chennai. This College was started on 3-7-1968, and was inaugurated by the then Chief Minister of Tamilnadu Dr. C.N. ANNADURAI popularly known among Tamilians as “ANNA”

            At that period of time Villupuram was a part of South Arcot District and was educationally backward and no institution for higher education was available there. In order to cater the aspirations of the local population, the Tamilnadu government started this institution in 1968 and 320 students enrolled in pre-university courses.

From its inception, the College has been catering the needs of the people in and around Villupuram, who are socially and economically backward. Most of the students of past and present are first graduate’s from poor families. This institution has made appreciable contribution in making large number of women graduates, for whom the school education itself was a dream long back.

In 1971, an undergraduate course in economics (B.A. Economics) was started followed by B.A. History, B.Sc., Chemistry and B.Com., courses. Till 1972, the college was functioning at Kamaraj Municipal High School, Villlupuram and from 1973  onwards  the College started functioning in the present campus.
