The imposing stone and brick building (see virtual tour) which is the heart of the College was made possible through the generous benefaction of Francis Ormond, a western district pastoralist with a passion for education and a desire to ensure that students from afar could take advantage of the opportunities offered by The University of Melbourne.Architect: Joseph Reed
