Mackillop House


Since 1990 MacKillop House has provided accommodation for young rural women who come to Canberra to continue study after completing their school education. Our aim is to offer a warm, friendly, Christian atmosphere. We emphasise the value of justice , tolerance, respect, personal responsibility, and care for one another and our environment. We are committed to supporting those who choose to live here through the provision of :

  • A safe, clean and friendly environment
  • Facilities supportive of their study needs
  • Clearly stated expectations regarding responsibilities and behaviour within the house
  • Balanced nutritious meals and opportunities to develop skills for communal and independent living. 

MacKillop House provides students with the opportunity to settle into tertiary study and a new city without the day to day concerns of meal preparation, general cleaning and all that is involved with living in independent accommodation.
