St Paul's College
in Sydney, Australia, is an Anglican
residential college for men attached to the University of Sydney
. Founded in 1856 by virtue of an Act of the New South Wales Legislative Council
(1854), it is Australia's oldest university college. It is familiarly referred to as 'Paul's', its residents as 'Paulines', and its alumni as 'Old Paulines'.
The College has nearly 200 residents, of whom about 150 are undergraduates; the remainder are graduates undertaking further study or holding university positions. It retains most of its original grant and has its own oval and tennis and basketball courts.
St Paul's was one of the two earliest university colleges in the Australian colonies, along with Christ College, Hobart
, founded 1846. Its development followed an unsuccessful attempt by members of the Anglican church to incorporate the earlier St James's College within the new University of Sydney, and was led by Sir Alfred Stephen
, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of New South Wales
The college is independent of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney, although the Warden must be an ordained Anglican clergyman. There are 18 fellows, six of whom must be Anglican clergy and 12 laymen.<!--Need to check whether the 12 MUST be laymen--> Fellows serve... Read More
