At St Hilda’s you’re supported to settle in to university, college and city life. It’s officially what we do – through policies, programs and our Communitas spirit.
We know the first days can be daunting. Here you’ll find a place where you are resourced and welcome. At St Hilda’s we do O-Week with fun, get to know you stuff made of peer support not peer pressure. Our pastoral care approach to orientation means you’ll get to meet people and learn your way around – with your wellbeing at the forefront of formal and student-led activities.
Expect an adjustment period. Uni is different to school and you’ll be in the midst of a big life move. At St Hilda’s you’ll be encouraged to get involved, and trained student leaders and experienced staff will be here to guide you. We have first year mentoring resources in place. The Academic Mentoring Program assists students in managing the transition to university life, and supports your academic progress and personal development.
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.
