The College’s governing body is its Council, established by statute, consisting of the Warden and twelve Fellows.
The St Paul’s College Act 2018, passed by State Parliament on 14 November 2018, modernised the governance of the College, including reducing the size and increasing the diversity of the College Council.
Upon the commencement of the St Paul’s College Act 2018, the College’s previous By-laws ceased to have effect. New By-laws (modelled closely on the previous By-laws) were made and adopted by the Council on 4 February 2019 and are available here. It is expected that the new Council, formed on 31 March 2019, will conduct a review of By-laws.

The governance reform of St Paul’s College was passed with the support of both the Government and the Opposition, and with the support of the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sydney (Dr Michael Spence AC), the Anglican Archbishop of Sydney (the Most Revd Dr Glenn Davies), the Broderick Project Team that undertook the cultural review of the College in 2018, the College Council, and the committee of the St Paul’s College Union (the alumni body).
