Reading was the passion of all the most significant personalities. Thus, reading habit influences, in particular, the promotion of one’s personal development and social progress in general. Regular and systematic reading sharpens the mind, refines the emotions, elevates tastes and provides perspectives for one’s life, thereby preparing an individual to participate actively in social, religious, cultural and political life. The drive of this study is to investigate the reading habits in educational contexts of university students. A sample of 120 college students using the college library was selected adopting simple random sampling technique. The findings of the study were that there was a significant difference between male and female students and their reading habit. There was no significant difference between arts and science students and their reading habit. There was no significant difference between rural and urban students and their reading habit. Their reading habits between Tamil and English medium students were not significantly different.
