St Hilda's College opened in 1964 to provide accommodation for rural women, led by the founding Chair of Council, Alice Paton and Marjorie Smart the first Principal. Today we celebrated International Women's Day at a breakfast with two inspirational alumni guest speakers, Associate Professor Liz Dax and Dr Caitlin Barr. We thank you, and acknowledge all the amazing women in our community past, present and future.
St Hilda's College is a living community and residential college on campus at the University of Melbourne.
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Wurrundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, the Traditional Owners of the land upon which our college is situated. We pay our respect to all the Elders of Indigenous students who call St Hilda’s home. We also acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members of our community, the University of Melbourne, and the wider world.
