About Arya College

The advent of Arya College, Ludhiana (Premier Post Graduate Institution of Northern India) in 1946 on the educational map of the country was the fulfillment of the long cherished desire of the people of Ludhiana and its surrounding areas. A few dedicated members of Arya Samaj met in 1945 and decided to raise funds to start a degree college to cater to the needs of the young students. Their mission was to keep aloft the torch of knowledge and awakening kindled by Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati. It was due to their untiring efforts that Arya College came into existence in Ludhiana in 1946. It was started in a building known as Malerkotla House. The same building was later used to house the Women Section when it was started in 1970. At present, the College is considered to be a premier post graduate educational institute of higher education of the northern India.It started a separate Women Section in 1970 for independent studies of girls students in the old campus. Now it has been housed in a spacious building adjacent to the old building of Dayanand Medical College in Civil Lines area. It has arrangements for Arts, Commerce, Computer Science and Home Science faculties.The College aims at harmonious all-round development of the students in the field of art, literature, science, commerce, computer education, games, sports, co-curricular and youth activities.
