Establishment and History

The establishment of Bond University in 1987 was initiated by Alan Bond who was the chairman and founder of Bond Corporation. His corporation partnered with EIE, one of Japan’s biggest financial investor. It was in the same year when the Bond University act was passed which granted it university status. The university formally operated in 1989 with only 322 students to serve. In 1991, EIE acquired the shares of Bond Corporation, and in 1998, the campus was acquired by Bond University Ltd.

The same rating was given to the university in the years 2009 and 2007.

Current Situation

The structure of Bond University was well-planned to keep the atmosphere conducive to teaching and learning. The buildings of the universities are accentuated by a man-made lake called Lake Orr. The university also offers housing assistance on-campus, and also assists students who prefer accommodation outside the campus.
