The Annamalai University is a unitary, teaching and residential university. It was founded by the munificence of the farsighted and noble hearted philanthropist and patron of letters the late Hon'ble Dr. Rajah Sir Annamalai Chettiar of Chettinad, Kt, LL.D., D.Litt. He started several colleges and ultimately the University in 1929. The University has had the unique good fortune of having a succession of eminent Vice-Chancellors to guide its destinies. During the last seventy eight years the University has grown rapidly and consolidated its position as a unitary and residential University with Forty nine Departments of Study and over 2500 members on its teaching staff. Annamalainagar is already a busy and full-fledged University town east of Chidambaram, the abode of Lord Nataraja. The University campus, including the colleges, hostels and playgrounds occupies an area of about thousand acres. The Faculty of Medicine with the Dental College, Nursing and Pharmacy Departments, was started in 1980, and the cherished desire of Dr. Rajah Sir Muthiah Chettiar to set up a Medical College under the umbrella of the Faculty of Medicine was fulfilled in 1985.
