As a community we connect and look out for each other in myriad ways. But we’ve also got a bunch of formal processes and welfare programs in place so residents get the personal support they need.
Mental Health First Aid Training is offered to staff, resident tutors and students. Two Student Pastoral Care Workers support our student wellbeing program. A counsellor is here for two days a week during the academic year.
An open door policy is in place so you can discuss any issues of concern with the Principal or Vice-Principal. You’ll get support for referrals to external services. Privacy and confidentiality are respected.
Our resident tutors play academic and pastoral roles through the tutorial program, their participation in sports, social and cultural activities, and academic mentoring of first years. Student Club leaders provide peer support.
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.
