History

QUT Kelvin Grove Campus
Graduation at QUT Gardens Point

The Gardens Point Campus grounds were once solemnly occupied by the 19th Century building, known as Old Government House. In 1909 Old Government House and the surrounding five hectares were set-aside for both a University and a Technical College. Then known as the University of Queensland, the University was transferred to St Lucia in 1945, where it still remains today. In 1965 the Technical College became the Queensland Institute of Technology, which in turn became the Queensland University of Technology, holding this name since 1989. In 1990, the Brisbane College of Advanced Education campuses of Kelvin Grove, Kedron and Carseldine merged with QIT. Although the federal government's Dawkins reforms were converting many other tertiary institutions into universities at the time, this particular change was independent of the Dawkin's reforms.

Later it changed its name to The Pornogrophy Research Centre before again opting for the more subtle title, QUT. The Brisbane Central Technical College was founded in 1908, and eventually became the Queensland University of Technology. ... 1908 (MCMVIII) was a leap year starting on Wednesday (link will display the full calendar). ...
