Initially the college operated out of the family home of the Revd. Edward Bickersteth, but by 1825 the college had moved to purpose-built accommodation in Upper Street, Islington with classrooms and living accommodation for students and a professional staff. By 1894, the Church Missionary Society College had trained about 600 missionaries.
