When people hear that you live on a college, they make many assumptions. They assume that you have the best social life, they assume you have better access to academic support and they assume you have more opportunities to excel in sporting and other extra curricular domains. Although these are common assumptions and it's said that you shouldn't believe everything you hear,  I can guarantee that they are 100% true. Saints Catholic College is not only a college but a community. A community that I thought I would stay at for only one year but has since seen me through most of my degree. Anyone looking for a smooth transition from home should look no further than Saints.

With a wide range of social, sporting and cultural events throughout the year, Saints is able to offer a unique experience for every single one of its residents. Whether you’re competing in rugby, soccer or water polo against the other colleges, attending our annual College Ball, or performing with our college band, there’s something on offer for everyone. Combine this with a great academic support team and the convenience of being in walking distance to class every day, and it’s easy to see why Saints Catholic College is a place to not only succeed in your studies, but to also have a balanced lifestyle outside of class.

Saints Catholic College made my time in Townsville incredible! As a first year student Saints offered me everything I could have wished for in a home away from home. A wonderful environment, great location and unforgettable friends. Living at Saints was a great experience and it gave me independence which comes with living away from home but it also provided a wonderful support network. Looking back on my time here I wouldn’t change a thing and I am very proud to have been a part of this community.

"Don't come to Saints Catholic College!....Because you will never want to leave! I came to the College in 2012 with the expectation of only staying for my first year.  Now it's 2015 and I am in my graduating year of a Bachelor of Laws, and cannot imagine having spent my years of study anywhere else!  Saints Catholic College provides all the necessities of everyday life with the convenience of the University being across the road and the welcoming and home-like feeling of having a massive family supporting you 24/7. With a focus on academic success, balanced with amazing social events and the importance of compassionate pastoral care, this College will always be home to me.  Make it your home too.  You won't regret it."

"Living at Saints Catholic College has been an enjoyable, fun experience and amazing from a social perspective.  The sense of community, the wonderful people and the great friends I have made at the College have made my move away from home a smooth transition."
