Organisation Queens College (1887 - )

16 June 1887

Queens College was founded on the piece of land granted by the Victorian Government to the Methodist Church by the Reverend William Quick on June 16th, 1887 (Founder's Day) and named Queen's in response to the Jubilee of Queen Victoria's reign of that year. The College opened its doors to 18 students on 4 March 1888.

Queen's is now a College of the Uniting Church and is affiliated by statute with the University of Melbourne. Traditionally, Queen's was a male-only residential College. In 1973 it became co-educational and now has men and women in about equal numbers.
