St Hilda’s is a bit different. We always were. As the youngest college at the University of Melbourne founded in 1964 by a group of formidable women, we’ve always prided ourselves on being pioneers who create opportunities and welcome people in. This inclusive and egalitarian spirit underpins life at St Hilda’s. It’s a place of connection and community where we share daily experiences, support one another to be our best and contribute to making the world a better place.

Communitas means 'spirit of community' and believe us, you will sense that spirit the minute you walk in.

During my time here, St Hilda’s has become more than a place of residence and academic support, and I know the friendships I have made here will be life-long. More than a slogan, I can proudly say our college motto ‘Communitas’ is a way of life.
