Presidium Convent was established in autumn 1919, almost together with Latvian University. However it de facto started work only in autumn 1920, after Latvian War of Independence ended. Founders of Presidium Convent were five oldest Latvian student corporations: Lettonia, Selonija, Lettgallia, Talavija, Fraternitas Lettica.
In the interwar period many new Latvian student corporations were admitted in Presidium Convent. In 1920s all Baltic- German corps (Curonia, Fraternitas Baltica, Concordia Rigensis, Fraternitas Rigensis, Rubonia, Gotonia) were also admitted in Presidium Convent. However in 1932 all of them left Presidium Convent as a protest for decision that only Latvian language must be used in Presidium Convent meetings.
In 1940, after Soviet occupation of Latvia, Presidium Convent were closed, just like other Latvian student organisations. After second world war most of Latvian student corporations renewed their work in exile. In such conditions, it was impossible to renew Presidium Convent in its pre-war shape, so in 1949 a new global organization was formed which united all Latvian student corporations in exile: Union of Latvian corporations (Latvian: Latvijas Korporāciju apvienība).
