Pre-founding History: 1896-1908

The South African School of Mines was founded in Kimberley in 1896. Eight years later, in 1904 the school moved to Johannesburg and changed its name to the "Transvaal Technical Institute". The school changed its name in 1906 to the "Transvaal University College". In 1908 the Pretoria branch of the school was established.

Founding Years: 1908-1929

University of Pretoria has it origins in the founding of Transvaal University College (TUC) Pretoria campus. TUC commenced its activities in 1908 with a staff of four professors and three lecturers and 32 students in the Kya Rosa, now a campus landmark. The University of Pretoria became a fully fledged university in 1930 with the promulgation of the University Of Pretoria Act. The name Tuks or Tukkies, for the University of Pretoria, derives from the acronym for the College, namely TUC. As has become the colloquel name for the institution.

In the years preceding the South African War (1899-1902) there was much discussion in the Volksraad of the ZAR regarding the establishment of a university. These plans were interrupted by the outbreak of the war. In 1902 the Normal College for the training of teachers was established in Pretoria and in 1904 the Transvaal Technical Institute opened in Johannesburg with an emphasis on mining education. Classes were also offered by the institute in Pretoria.

In 1906 the institute adopted a new name – the Transvaal University College (TUC) and in 1908 university classes began in Pretoria in the Arts and Sciences as part of the TUC with its seat in Johannesburg. The first four professors were Prof H Th Reinink (Dutch), J Purves (Scottish), A C Paterson (Scottish) and D F du Toit Malherbe (South African).

On 10 February 1908 32 students began with classes in Kya Rosa, a house in Skinner Street and on 4 March 1908 the Transvaal University College (TUC) became known officially as the Pretoria Centre of the Transvaal University College. Kya Lami in Schoeman Street was used as a men’s residence for students and lecturers.

On 17 May 1910 the TUC in Pretoria became an independent institution apart from the Johannesburg institute, which became known as the South African School of Mines and Technology and later went on to become the University of the Witwatersand. The TUC acquired its own campus in the east of Pretoria. The cornerstone of the sabdstone Old Arts building was laid by Governor General Gladstone on 3 August 1910 and in September 1911 the TUC moved into the Old Arts and the Old Chemistry buildings. There were seven professors, six lecturers and 62 students.

In 1914 the College men’s residence was built, today known as Kollege. 1917 saw the establishment of the Faculties of Agriculture and Theology, 1918 the establishment of the Faculty of Law and in 1919 the Faculties of Arts, Natural Sciences, Trade and Public Administration and Veterinary Science were established. In 1920 the TUC acquired the Experimental Farm and current sit of the LC de Villiers Sports Grounds and in 1926 the first official Ladies Residence, die Fant (today Vergeet-my-nie) was constructed. The welcoming of the first years (initiation) also started in this time and took place on Church Square, in full view of curious onlookers.

With sport facilities on the main campus (where the Musaion and Aula are today), students could partake in various kinds of sport, such as rugby, netball, hockey and tennis.
