M.G Hostel

 Model  Plan

The UTC Centenary Mahatma Gandhi Hostel and Quarters is a project of the college which was conceived for the centenary of the college in 2010. The demolition of the old Mahatma Gandhi hostel last year due to the weakness in the structure build decades ago has made this very urgent and important for UTC to function properly. The project will cost atleast 7 crore rupees (this is because of the rising cost of material and any delay in construction). The work is progressing but the college is in urgent need of funds. The principal, faculty, staff and students make an appeal to alumni, well wishers, friends, former staff, churches and all those who have been associated with UTC in anyway to remember the college in your prayers and contribute generously towards the hostel building fund.

The present construction has also lead to less accomodation being on offer for students and it has affected the in take of students and the facilities on offer to them. The ecumenical nature of the college has always been a place for candidates from different denominations to come together and study together. The churches have benefited from the candidates trained and equipped from UTC. This plea goes out to all as a means to participate in the continuing mission of UTC and the churches that it serves.

All room and hall sponsorships will be mentioned at the entrance of the room/hall and all contributions above Rs 50,000 will be mentioned in the building itself at an appropriate and visible place.

UTC Souvenir

 invitation1 invitation2 

The United Theological College is a 103 year old Christian institution. It trains future pastors, priests and leaders of the church in India. UTC is ecumenical and is represented by various dioceses and sections of the CSI, CNI, Methodist, Presbyterian, Baptist,  Lutheran, Marthoma, Syrian Orthodox churches in India and by the National Council of YMCA's of India, Danmission, Evangelical Lutheran Mission (ELM), Evangelical Mission in Solidarity (EMS), Trustees of the Jaffna College Funds and United Church of Christ and Disciples of Christ, USA.

A recent & urgent crisis

The Students’ Hostel building was recently found to be in danger of collapse and has been demolished. The Student Quarters is currently being rebuilt at the estimated cost of approx. 7 Crores. The first phase of the proposed building has been completed. However, the building of the second and third phase needs huge financial support.

Why support UTC?

India’s rapid changes make the need for UTC’s distinctive role greater than ever.

  1. UTC’s motto “Not to be served, but to serve” has challenged and encouraged generations of pastors and leaders of the church who have passed through the portals of this esteemed institution. The mission and vision of UTC to proclaim the Gospel through word and deed has continued unflinchingly for over a century.
  2. Congregations across India are in need of trained pastors/priests who can work in rural and urban congregations and minister to people based on the gospel of Jesus Christ. A highly competent ministry is a more urgent priority than ever. (Enrolled at UTC in 2012: Master’s Courses - 60 students; Doctoral Students - 25; For BD-80-90 students).
  3. UTC looks for increased inclusiveness of attitude and action, as ways of engaging with other communities are constantly worked out.

Therefore, the added facility would facilitate training more number of pastors and teachers to equip the Church in its mission in India and abroad.

For this the college has decided to bring out a souvenir for the building project. The souvenir will have scholarly articles from reputed faculty members of different theological colleges, church leaders and lay people both women and men. Advertisement tariffs for the souvenir are
