Once in Tambaram came pouring in from every side
Girls from all over the land and sea,
What shall we do, said the committee to the principal
We'll, build a new Women's Hostel said he. 
Here's to the hostel, cheers to the Hostel
Better by far than any other Hall
Thomas Heber Selaiyur - what are they in comparison?
Our Martin Hall is the best hall of all.
Hostel was built up in the year of 1968
Residents moved in as fast as they could
And all around success it was, from the very start
In everything it was nothing but good.
Here's to the hostel, good luck to it for evermore
May all who come keep alive its fame.
Tackle life in Tambaram with courage, love and loyalty
And we'll endeavor to keep it just the same.




It is 70 years since the women students were admitted in the college and 69 years since women’s hostel was functioning in rented homes at Professors colony, Pallavaram, Guindy and from 1968 in M.C.C. campus.

Started as Women’s Hostel for 40 girls in M.C.C. the hostel was named ‘Martin Hall’ in 1990 and has seen extensions over these years. The present strength is 211 residents with 5 staff on residence. The residents are ranging from I U.G to M. Phil. coming from different parts of the country and a few overseas students from Sri Lanka, Tibet and Tanzania.

The residents have a conducive atmosphere for studies and live and grow together as one family. The Hall has many facilities like the Agnes Martin Auditorium where they have their General body meetings and programmes, a library, a prayer room with a grand piano, an Indoor games Recreation centre, 24 hours water supply, a ‘Solarizer’ with 24 hours hot water, water cooler, an infirmary and guest rooms for parents to stay.

The cabinet along with the general body plan their programme and every resident is involved in all the activities. They have outreach programmes like teaching the children of Model village, R.S.L School, F.L.I and visiting a senior citizens Home at Perungalathur.

It is 11 years since I have joined as a warden and it is my joy to work with the young minds who have good talents, vibrant vision and a focus for quality life. The student leadership is unique in M.C.C. and the Inter block events, Inter year competitions, annual events and the Hall day nurture a feeling of camaraderie among the residents. Hundreds of residents have passed out and their contribution enabled the Hall and the residents to grow.

I remember with gratitude all the Principals, Wardens, Cabinet, General Body Hall staff & Mess staff for their untiring efforts and contribution.

Let us dream to achieve great things and move forward from strength to strength.
