Administrative history

The first meeting of the Building Committee was held in Toronto on October 24, 1890. Victoria University has just received permission from the Minister of Education to take possession of a site in Toronto for the purpose of proceeding with the erection of buildings. At the second meeting, the architect W.G. Storm presented the plans for the main building for the new Toronto site of Victoria University (Old Vic Building). The Committee had authority over contracts with architects and builders, over plans for sites, use of College grounds and repairs. In 1907, the committee changed it's name to the Building and Grounds Committee.
