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.
