Teachers and Advisers

As your students start to think about their university prospects, it would be handy to know about all the options available to them. Here you'll find all the information you need to help them make the best decision.

Why choose St Catherine's?

Over the last 70 years, we've built a strong reputation as one of the leading residential colleges in Australia and are well known for the innovative programs we offer and the warm and welcoming culture of the community.

Do residents have to be studying at UWA?

No; St Catherine's is open to students studying at any of the five universities in Perth. However, due to our proximity, the majority of residents do attend The University of Western Australia.

How early should students start thinking about College?

St Catherine's has had a waiting list for the past few years so its important to start investigating and apply as soon as possible.

Applying to live at St Catherine's is separate to the application to study at university. The process is managed through the UWA Residential Colleges Application Portal. A one-off non-refundable $125 registration fee applies, and the portal will accept applications up to 12 months before your expected commencement at university.

We also realise that not all students would have the financial means to afford a College of this calibre so we have an extensive scholarship fund to support students.

How we can help

If your students are considering living at St Catherine's, please advise them to visit us for a tour or visit us on UWA Open Day to see first-hand how great it is. There are also experienced staff to advise them or answer any questions you may have.

For more information, you can always email Andrew Boyd, the Resident Admissions and Services Manager.
