Whitley College 2005


Whitley College is situated on land in Royal Parade owned by the Baptist Union of Victoria and reserved by it for the establishment and conduct of a College affiliated with the University of Melbourne.

In 1955 the Assembly of the Baptist Union decided to establish an affiliated college of the University as a centenary project of the Union and the foundation stone was laid in the centenary year 1962. The College was opened on 27 February 1965 by the Prime Minister, the Rt Hon. Sir Robert Menzies, KT. It is named after Dr William T. Whitley who established the first Baptist Theological College in Australia in 1891. The College continues to provide theological education and theological students may be resident members of the College.

The initial circular building housed 105 male students but in 1972 with the opening of an additional wing, the College became co-educational. The College now accommodates 130 students and 13 tutors / residential assistants.

Whitley College is governed by a Council under the control of the Baptist Union of Victoria. It is open for residence to students of the University of Melbourne of all religious persuasions. A limited number of students may become non- residents of the College.

Ridley College


Ridley College was founded in 1910, and from the outset has undertaken both university student residence and theological education. Throughout its history it has preserved this dual character. While Anglican in foundation, Ridley has always been home to students of any faith or none. Ridley now attracts students from all over Australia, and from a wide variety of international backgrounds.

The beginnings of the College were humble. A boarding house, called "Norwood" (which may still be seen opposite Janet Clarke Hall) was rented, and became a College housing five students. The College developed, however, and soon a property called "Kooringa" further down Sydney Road was purchased (now alas demolished to make way for a motel), and the College was set up on what was expected to be its final site. It continued to grow, however, and

"Kooringa" had to be sold in order to move to a larger site where the College is now located on the comer of Walker Street and The Avenue. At first there was ample accommodation in the large house, "Cumnock", but as the College grew other buildings were erected.

In order to strengthen the traditional links between the College and the University of Melbourne in 1965 application was made to the University Council for affiliation. The College began 1966 as one of the University of Melbourne's affiliated Colleges. In 1972 Ridley became co-residential, the first College at the University of Melbourne to do so.
