Sree Narayana College for Women is a postgraduate college affiliated[1] with the University of Kerala. The college is named after social reformer, philosopher and saint Sree Narayana Guru. The institution was established as a college for women in 1951. About 2500 students study in the college at present at degree and PG levels. It is an approved research center for eight subjects. It has 14 teaching departments and offers 16 undergraduate and 14 postgraduate courses.[2]


In 1946 the Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam resolved to establish a college at Kollam in the name of Sree Narayana Guru, to provide better higher educational facilities, mainly for the backward classes of Kerala.[citation needed] Accordingly, Sree Narayana College was opened in 1948 as a mixed college. To meet the increasing demand for seats, it was decided to start a separate college for women. The Sree Narayana College for Women began to function in the same building in September 1951 in affiliation with Kerala University.[citation needed]
