Administrative history

St. Patrick's College opened on September 5, 1929 near St. Joseph's Church on Laurier Avenue. Later, the College moved to Patterson Field on Echo Drive. The College was originally owned by the English speaking Province of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate and fell under the jurisdiction of the University of Ottawa. Due to a number of factors ranging from issues of funding to those of language, St. Patrick's College became part of Carleton University on July 12, 1967. St. Patrick's College moved to the Rideau River Campus on August 20, 1973 with the official opening of the new College occurring on October 14, 1973. Aside from an emphasis on the liberal arts, the College brought with it the School of Social Welfare which became the School of Social Work.
