What is the College of St George?

The College of St George is, at its heart, a community of people who live and work together to offer worship to God, prayers for the Sovereign and the Order of the Garter, service to society and hospitality to visitors.

The College was founded in 1348 at the same time as the Order of the Garter and now consists of St George’s School, St George’s House, (both of which now operate as charitable companies separate from other elements of the College), the Military Knights of Windsor, the Chapter Library & Archives and the Choir as well as, at the centre, St George’s Chapel itself.

The buildings, owned and occupied by the College, take up a quarter of Windsor Castle together with the school buildings outside the north wall.
