To mold students of the institution into well-meaning citizens of the nation through a socially committed, intellectually inclined, culture-driven, and future-oriented paradigm of learning.

History

The Institution, now called the University College, was founded in the year 1834 by the Government of Travancore during the reign of his Highness Sri Swathi Thirunal Rama Varma, one of the most illustrious rulers of the former State of Travancore, celebrated for his devotion and great contributions to art and culture.
The Maharaja had occasion to visit a school that was imparting instruction in English at Nagarcoil under the auspices of the London Mission Society.  He was impressed by the school and the quality of the education given there and was convinced that the new type of school held out great prospects for the people of the State. Shortly thereafter he invited Mr. Roberts who was in charge of the school at Nagarcoil to come to Thiruvananthapuram and start a similar school there.

Highlights

1. The classes were conducted in an old building located about half a mile to the south of the University College, on the premises where the Ayurveda College stands today.

2. It was a private institution, but the State Government contributed the prescribed fees for 80 pupils who thereby got free tuition.
