Description area


Queen Elizabeth College has its origins in the lectures for Ladies first arranged in 1878 by King's College London, and a formalised Ladies Department was founded in 1881. The King's College London (Transfer) Act of 1908 led to the establishment of the college as King's College for Women, governed by a Delegacy of the University of London. In 1915, all the departments excepting the Household and Social Science Department amalgamated with King's College, and in 1928 the department became a School of the University of London as King's College of Household and Social Science. In 1953 the College was granted a new charter as Queen Elizabeth College, and in 1985 merged with King's College London and Chelsea College. Following the merger the personnel functions of all three colleges were integrated in a single department which took responsibility for the staff and reported to the College Secretary.
