A school was started on the 15th of June 1876, By Gurikar Marimallappa at his own residence in Mysore City. As the school grew from strength to strength, there arose the necessity for a bigger building. Then the present building, housing Marimallappa P.U. College, High School and Higher Primary School, was constructed. When there was a shortage of money for completing it, Smt. Mallamma, wife of Sri Gurikar Marimallappa, sold all her jewellery so that the construction of the building continued. Thus, this imposing building was completed, with the supreme sacrifice and service of the noble lady. Such yeomen service prompted the Marimallappa Educational Trust to start a Women's First Grade College in the name of Smt. Mallamma. In this way, Mallamma Marimallappa Women's Arts and Commerce College came into existence in 1982. . Today, it is a leading college in Mysore City whose destiny has been shaped by experienced and dedicated teaching and non-teaching staff.

This college is well equipped with laboratories, sophisticated computers, well stocked library, seminar hall and spacious classrooms. Coaching is given to students both in English and Kannada medium. With a view to ensure all-round development of the students many committees and clubs like the Cultural Forum, Sports and Games Committee, Committee for conducting Mallamma Memorial Competitions, College Magazine Committee, Committee for Students Forum Election, NSS Committee, Quiz and Nature Club, Commerce Forum are constituted every year. These various committees and clubs encourage students to develop leadership qualities as well as nurture creative talents.

Simultaneously our college has been successful in achieving excellent academic results year after year since 1987-88. Till date it has secured a total of 64 ranks and several gold medals at the University Examinations.
