We aim to provide the best possible environment for students to pursue their studies at university
Queen’s College is an academic residential community that consists of students (both undergraduate and postgraduate), tutors, fellows, professionals and staff, and a number of non-resident members. Most students residing at Queen’s attend the University of Melbourne. Others also attend RMIT City Campus (excludes Brunswick) and Monash University’s Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
Our aim is to provide the best possible environment for students to pursue their studies at university. We do this by providing accommodation and a comprehensive tutorial program that complements the University curriculum. Students also benefit from living with graduates, post-graduates and professionals who are able to share their expertise and experiences. An extensive and diverse sporting and cultural program allows students to pursue their non-academic interests, as well as trying out new ones.
Queen’s College aims to provide an environment where students can develop their academic, social and life skills far beyond what they thought possible and which will benefit them throughout their life.
The College is governed by a Council of 15 members. The head of the College is its eighth Master, Dr Stewart Gill OAM. In academic matters, the Master is advised by the Fellows, who are former members of the College and other persons who have distinguished themselves in academic life and the wider community.
Currently, there are 294 residential students, including 53 graduates and post-graduates. The undergraduate students form the Junior Common Room. Graduates and post-graduates form the Middle Common Room and senior members of the College form the Senior Common Room.
Queen’s has a distinctive coat of arms. The animal on the crest is a Wyvern, a two-legged winged dragon of Scottish origin. It has been taken from the family arms of John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Church. Past residents of the College are known as Wyverns and still enjoy a close association with the College through the Wyvern Society. The motto of the College is the Latin phrase aedificamus in aeternum, which means “We are building for eternity”.
