MacKillop House

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.
