Darwin College is named after the eminent scientist Charles Darwin (1809-1882), whose home was in West Kent, where he wrote 'The Origin of Species and other books on the theory of evolution'.
The first Darwin students arrived in October 1970, when the College officially opened.
Darwin Houses were built close by in the 1980s. Each house name is associated with the life and career of Charles Darwin, features of the site, famous local people, or the history of the College.
