Ellis Court at the Royal Institute of Technology is named in honour of Frank Ellis (1886-1964), Principal of the College from 1927 to 1952. 

In 1927 Ellis was appointed principal of the Working Men's College, Melbourne (Melbourne Technical College from 1934). He presided over many changes and developments during an eventful twenty-five years. His four major achievements were the establishment (1943) of fellowship diploma courses, the expansion of the college through ten major building projects, the extension of business and management studies, and a campaign to have the college recognized as the pre-eminent technological institution in Victoria.
