The college was founded by Royal Charter in 1800 from the estates of Sir George Downing. The buildings were designed by William Wilkins and the first were erected between 1807 & 1812 and then not completed until 1873 by Edward Barry, in a mixture of white Portland stone and yellow and pink Ketton stone.
