Arul Anandar College Boys Hostel had a very humble beginning with limited space and resources in 1970 along with the dreams and hopes of the college. It has been serving mainly the rural students for 47 years. And today it has zoomed and boomed into this structure with strength of 600 students from Madurai, Dindigul, Sivaganga, Ramnad, Viruthunagar, Kovilpatty, Srivalliputhur, Thirunelveli, Nagarcoil, Salem and Chennai. From its rural setting, AAC aims to offer educational opportunities for the weaker sections of society‚ particularly the students who hail from a rural set up.
