The College motto Communitas means ‘community in feeling’ or ‘oneness in spirit’.It was the hope of the founders of St Hilda’s that our College would become a place where the humanities, sciences and the fine arts would complement one another, where men and women of different gifts and backgrounds would learn to live in a community of scholarship and then, after graduation, serve the wider community.
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.
