Undergraduate Accommodation

The tranquil surroundings and rooms full of character create a feminine environment rich in history and a sense of old-world academia

Most undergraduates reside in the Heritage (Main) Building, built in 1926. Here, female students undertaking their first degrees enjoy a space that is calming and inspiring, lending itself to academic achievement and the forging of lifelong friendships. Residents join us from all over Australia and the world as domestic, international and exchange students. Our tradition of being a home away from home for women from regional Australia remains strong today.
