Over generations, St Hilda’s has fostered an authentic reputation that its community can be proud of. Ask anyone along the College Crescent how they would describe our residence and no doubt phrases like ‘inclusive’, ‘welcoming’ and ‘vibrant’ would be included. Within our safe environment we have a strong ‘zero tolerance’ approach to matters of harassment and bullying, and support the respectful relationships formed between our members. We think you will love it here! Come and join our community.
Our people are committed to Communitas. An esteemed governing council and our Principal, Dr Brenda Holt, guide a team of around 20 staff who want to help you get where you need to go. Our fellows and residential tutors are key members of the St Hilda’s team, providing academic and pastoral leadership.
The founding story and Communitas spirit guide our future activities.

With your help we can create ways to strengthen community connections and expand opportunities for students.
Last year, the College gave over $600K in scholarships. Half of our students receive either a scholarship, bursary or a job on campus. Scholarships are awarded on a range of criteria including academic results, personal qualities, and financial need. Our mission is to make the college experience available to all, regardless of personal circumstances.
