St Mary MacKillop Wing

The St Mary MacKillop Wing opened in 2010. It is built in the shape of a cross and accommodates 70 residents 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.

These are the most modern constructed rooms at Saints and all rooms open onto a hallway and have air-conditioning as well as fans with some rooms also having their own small private balcony. All rooms in the St Mary MacKillop Wing have ensuites with a mixture of both private ensuites rooms and rooms where two residents of the same gender share an ensuite bathroom.

The common areas are also air-conditioned and are in the centre of the building and allow the residents plenty of opportunity to mix, socialise and relax with their neighbours. The common room spaces have multiple kitchens, lounge areas, balconies, study and computer rooms. All common rooms have large 75 inch HD TV with a myrid of streaming services, PS4's and Google Chromecast.

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 Winna Shield Sporting Competition and the Inter-College Music Competition coordinated by the Saints Student Association.
