The main campus was formerly known as Suan Ban Kaew Palace, the private residence of Her Majesty Queen Rambhai Barni, the Queen of King Prajadhipok or King Rama VII. After H.M. King Prajadhipok passed away, H.M. Queen Rambhai Barni lived here from June 1950 to June 1972 with the strong desireto developing this region of the country.
With her clear vision for the nation’s development, particularly in educating the people of the nation, the Queen generously donated her own residence to Thailand’s Ministry of Education in 1972 to establish an institution of higher education in the eastern Thailand. The aging Queen then took up her permanent residence at Sukhothai Palace in Bangkok.
Chanthaburi Teachers Collegewas therefore established at Suan Ban Kaew Palace in 1972. The Queen kindly permitted the college to use H.M. King Prajadhipok’s royal insignia, ‘Sakdidej’ as the first college emblem for which all lecturers, staff, and students are deeply grateful. Later in 1985, Rambhai Barni College, with permission of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, replaced the former name in the commemoration of H.M. Queen RambhaiBarni.
This is because Chanthaburi residents wanted to show their deepest appreciation, gratefulness, and loyalty to the late Queen who had acted for them in a myriad of benevolent way. In 1995, H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej kindly renamed all state Teachers Colleges across Thailand to ‘Rajabhat Institutes’ and upgraded their status and rights to those of universities.
Rambhai Barni College was then changed to Rajabhat Institute Rambhaibharni. Finally on June 15, 2004, the official name was changed to Rambhai Barni Rajabhat University. Lecturers, staff and students are proud of our long and prestigious history as well as our tradition of excellence in academic growth.
During the time H.M. Queen RambhaiBarni lived in Chanthaburi, the Queen worked for the benefit and well-being of Chanthaburi residents. Some of the Queen Rambhai Barni’s projects included initiating demonstration plots for local orchards, improving poultry and cattle raising, developing new technology for dyeing reed, diversifying the weaving of reed-mats as the province’s major craft, developing a golf course, and founding a local hospital. Chanthaburi was fortunate to have H.M. Queen Rambhai Barni whose magnanimity and wisdom upheld the quality of life of all Chanthaburi residents.
Rambhai Barni Rajabhat University continues to appreciate the late Queen’s benevolence in developing the nation. We follow in her footsteps, honorher vision and have made her vision a reality. We have achieved our goal of rapid academic development. Originally, Chanthaburi Teachers College offered certificates and basic degrees in the various areas of Education. Even though we built our reputation with our professionally oriented Teacher Education, Rambhai Barni College soon offered other professional disciplines in addition to education.
Now, with over four decades of experience, Rambhai Barni Rajabhat University offers programs in many disciplines at a variety of levels of education. Our original areas of responsibility for educating and training people designated by The Ministry of Education include Chanthaburi, Rayong, and Trat provinces which are all on the east coast of Thailand. Later students from other regions across Thailand and overseas students recognized our reputation together with the charms and attractions of the region and this has resulted in an increased number of students choosing Rambhai Barni Rajabhat University as their preferred place of study.
In addition to our academic strength, the main campus has also been improved to create a unique environment for learning. Beautiful scenery and landscapes enhance the pleasant atmosphere of the campus. The Queen’s old golf course has been developed into one of the best in the east. The golf course also has been added to the campus beauty. The natural forest on campus has been conserved for wildlife and plant genetic conservation studies so there are plenty of trees around.
Moreover, orchards on campus offer peace and tranquility for the students and staff. At Rambhai Barni Rajabhat University, one can enjoy the charm of a prestigious past, unspoiled beauty, and a pollution free campus. The location is unique and attractive with easy access to the spectacular sights along the East Coast: Chanthaburi, Rayong, Trat, Koh Chang, KohSamet, and Pattaya - the world famous resort city.
