St Mary MacKillop Wing

The St Mary MacKillop Wing opened in 2010. It is built in the shape of a cross and accommodates 70 students on two levels. It is named after St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, Australia's first saint.

The wing is distinctive in its exterior colour scheme and it is quite prominent in its position on the University's ring road. It is within easy-walking distance of all on-campus facilities and there is ample car-parking if you wish to bring your car.


The dimensions of most of the rooms in the St Mary MacKIllop Wing are 4.8m x 3.1m.  All rooms are single occupancy rooms.

All rooms open onto a hallway and have air-conditioning as well as fans. The common areas are in the centre of the building and allow the residents plenty of opportunity to mix, socialise and relax with their neighbours.

The St Mary MacKillop Wing is co-educational and two residents of the same gender share an ensuite bathroom. The Wing also has a few rooms with separate ensuites and balconies.

The building is safe and secure with security screens and electronic key access - for residents only. Visitors are welcome but must be accompanied by the host resident at all times.


The MacKillop Wing Community

The St Mary MacKillop Wing is named after Australia's first saint and is our newest building. The Wing is co-educational and houses 70 students. Many of these students come from different parts of Australia and from a variety of ethnic and faith backgrounds. There is a close bond between the residents and the central common areas draw people together for relaxation or study.  The well-appointed kitchens often entice the students to bake cakes or biscuits to share with their friends and they can also cook up a midnight snack for those late night study sessions.

The MacKillop Wing community is gradually building its own traditions and appropriate floor activities are encouraged. As a member of the Wing and the College you will be encouraged to participate in college life at a level which is comfortable for yourself. Mutual respect and ongoing personal development are highly valued in both an academic and social sense.

All members are encouraged to participate in the Fisher Shield Sporting Competition and the Inter-College Music Competition coordinated by the Saints Student Association.
