Our mission is to give you the best college experience possible. Whether you're an undergraduate, postgraduate, local, or international student, we have the tools and systems in place to ensure you make the best of your time at university.
#2: Our student care centre
University can be a lot to manage, but our newly-opened student care centre is here to help! It's a one-stop-shop for student support, whether that's academic, health-related, social, or if you just want to chat.
#3: Our castle is air-conditioned
Our buildings have been extensively renovated with new student rooms, bathrooms, furniture and air-conditioning, so you'll get a beautiful place to live with all the modern comforts you'd expect (plus, living in a castle is pretty awesome).
#4: Great academic support
St George's provides free weekly tutorials for a large proportion of university units. Our tutorials are run by university tutors and experienced students who've excelled in those units previously, ensuring that you receive effective help.
#5: Plenty of Scholarships
We know that fees can be expensive- so we give scholarships to a greater percentage of students than any other college in Perth. In addition, we’re the first college to provide financial awards to ALL residents who meet their personalised academic expectations.
#6 : A welcoming community
We’re the smallest college at UWA - and that’s great! When you sit down for dinner, it means that every face will be familiar, and after your first year here, there’ll be 220 people you can genuinely call your friends. Our residents are a hugely vibrant and diverse group of people, so no matter who you are, we’re sure you’ll fit right in. Just ask them!
#7: Location, location, location!
St George's College has one of Perth's best locations! We are located between beautiful King's Park and the Swan River, across the road from UWA's campus, a short bus trip into Perth City and Cottesloe beach, within walking distance of many great restaurants and cafés and we have excellent transport links to all other Perth universities. So, no matter where you want to go it won't take you long!
#8: We've been the innovators since 1931
We're the first UWA college established in 1931. Since then we've been the first to introduce the Residential Advisory system, academic tutorials, solar panels, business support for student startups, and a student care centre. At St George's we continually work with our residents to look for innovative ways to improve the student experience.
#9: Fantastic opportunities
At St George's offers a wide range of unique opportunities you won't find anywhere else. Whether you're interested in the arts, sport, academics, volunteering, leadership, your future career, or just having fun- we have something here for you!
#10: Be independent without the stress
Living at college gives you independence you want while taking care of the hard work for you. The college provides three meals a day, room cleaning once a week, free laundry facilities, Wifi and the ease of simply walking across the road to your classes.
