OLHCC was founded in 1916 as a two year normal school by the Marianites of Holy Cross. Its original location was in the Bywater area of New Orleans. 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.
In August 2011, the Marianites dismissed the college's president and all 19 of its trustees without warning. The move prompted an investigation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, the college's regional accreditor.
OLHCC is on a 16-acre (65,000 m2) campus in a middle-class residential neighborhood of the Algiers area of New Orleans on the west bank of the Mississippi River. It is built primarily in the Southern Colonial style.
OLHCC is a Roman Catholic college, founded by the Marianites of Holy Cross.
The college states that it enrolls roughly 1,250 students.
