Originally, Suan Sunandha was once the royal garden in the precinct of Dusit Palace as a place for leisure of king Rama V and the royal family. The name "Uttayan Sunandha" or "Sunandha Royal Garden" was dubbed from name of Indra God's garden in the paradise, and is also the name of King Rama V's favorite and beloved queen - Queen Sunandha Kumareerattana. In the reign of King Rama VI, 32 buildings were built for being the residence of the royal consorts and concubines of King Rama V, including their courtiers. H.H. Princess Saisavali Bhiromya, one of the Royal Consort, founded a lady school "Nibhakarn". aiming to train the royal etiquette and manner for the royal young ladies as well as the ladies from noble families.

The Siamese Coup d'état of 1932 had made a big impact towards the Royal households. A lot of royal members and courtiers resided in Suan Sunandha felt unsecure about the situation, consequently, they left the place. The beauty and splendid of Suan Sunandha, including Nibhakarn School were no longer existed.

It was until the reign of King Rama VIII, the once-decayed Suan Sunandha was back to life. The cabinet had made a consensus to make use of Suan Sunandha space as a lady school named "Sunandha Wittayalai School", transforming the royal inner court to a national education institution, and having been developed and upgraded to Suan Sunandha Rajabhat University right now.
