Emmanuel College was founded by the Queensland Presbyterian Church in 1911. It was created as a university residential college for the new university in an adaption from the Oxbridge model. Only a small amount of axillary tutorials occurred in the Australian residential college system, and a true college existed with the housing of a theological centre. In the case of ‘Emmanuel’, it was the Presbyterian Theological Hall.

In 1955, the College relocated to its current site on Sir William MacGregor Drive, St Lucia.
