The War Memorial was erected to commemorate 750 men from the Hawkesbury Agricultural College who served in World War One. The campus at Richmond was formerly the Hawkesbury Agricultural College. 

The memorial was made possible by the federal government’s ANZAC Centenary Local Grants Program, which donated $37,950 to the Richmond and Windsor RSL sub-branches. The memorial was the centrepiece of the 2015 ANZAC ceremony at McQuade Park, Windsor. The memorial was moved to the university after the ceremony and unveiled at the campus in July 2015.
