Welcome to our College Website....
Government Arts College, Chidambaram has been
started by the Government of Tamilnadu in 1982 at a crucial moment
when the nearby Annamalai University suddenly suspended all it’s
under graduate courses.
Chidambaram, a prominent town in the District of Cuddalore is
famous for its temples and culture. It constitutes many villages
and the students hailing from such villages are mostly first generation
of literates in their families.
So, when there was a void created due to the abolishment of under
graduate courses in the Annamalai University, the Government of
Tamilnadu started this college in the old Government Hospital
building for the welfare of all the students of the nearby rural
community. Then, in August 1987, the college started functioning
from the new building at C-Mutlur, a village away by 8 km from
heart of the town.
