St John’s College was founded by the Anglican 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 true college system existed with the relations with a theological centre. In the case of St John’s College, it was the St Francis Theological College.

St John’s College moved to the St Lucia campus in 1956.
