History

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.
