The idea of a second university for South Australia was conceived and in 1960 government owned land in Bedford Park was allocated to the University of Adelaide for a second campus. This was at a time when the population of South Australia was increasing rapidly and more people were seeking higher education. In 1961, a Planning Committee was established and Professor Peter Karmel was appointed Principal-Designate. In 1962 Architect Mr Geoff Harrison, was appointed in conjunction with the architectural firm Hassell, McConnell and Partners. £3.8M ($7.6M) was allocated by the Australian Universities Commission for capital works from 1964 - 1966. In 1963 the first academic appointments were made and capital works began later that year, and the first meeting of the Bedford Park Professors took place at the Bedford Park Planning Office on North Terrace in Adelaide. In 1965 after the Australian Labor Party won the State election, it was decided that the Bedford Park site would become a separate university from the University of Adelaide.For over 50 years, Flinders has been a centre of inspiring achievement: from our pioneering research and excellence in teaching to the positive impact we have in the communities we serve.
