King's College is an all-male residential college situated at the St Lucia campus of the University of Queensland, Australia. Founded in 1912, the college provides accommodation for 260 students of the University. The College operates as an academic and residential community of undergraduate and postgraduate members drawn from country and suburban areas throughout Australia as well as many other nations. The college has produced 5 recipients of the Rhodes Scholarship and 42 University Medalists. In addition, King's has won the ICC Cup 38 times.
In 1901, the Methodist Conference of Queensland began to send candidates for ministry to Queen's College, Melbourne, a college which combined both theological education and a resident college. This became the model for King's. The college was first opened on 14 June 1913 at Kangaroo Point, the original location of the University of Queensland, and moved in 1954 to the new campus at St Lucia.
