About Our College

UOHC was founded in 1916 as a two-year women's normal school by the Marianites of Holy Cross. Its original location was in the Bywater area of New Orleans.[2] It became a 4-year institution in 1938. In 1947, a 40-acre (16 ha) parcel of land in Algiers was donated to the Marianites. The college completed a move across the river to this new site in 1960. Its area was later reduced by a sale. Men were first admitted in 1967.
