Loyola College was founded by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in 1925, with the primary objective of providing University Education in a Christian atmosphere for deserving Students, especially those belonging to the Catholic Community. Although this college is meant primarily for Catholics, it admits other students irrespective of caste and creed. Loyola College became autonomous in July 1978. The College, however, continues to be affiliated to the University of Madras and is autonomous, in the sense that it is free to frame its own course of studies and adopt innovative methods of teaching and evaluation. The University degrees will be conferred on the students passing the examinations conducted by the college.
The central library has a collection of more than 1,02,000 books, 225 journals, 8,087 e-journals and 48,146 e-books. The Loyola Digital Library provides 24 hours access to the students. Loyola Hostel, Loyola Women's Hostel, PG Hostel and Berchmans Illam together have 836 rooms and can accommodate 974 students.
