Stay connected

There are a number of ways that the College communicates important information to residents:

Weekly Bulletin

Every Sunday morning, residents receive a copy of the Weekly Bulletin. This keeps you up to date with what's going on around the College and we encourage you to read it every week. 

Please make sure that the email address that is reflected in your resident profile on the Resident Portal is current so you (and not your parents) receive the Bulletin.

Social Media

St Catherine's officially maintains a number of accounts across various social media platforms as an alternative mode of communication to residents. Please add yourself to our private Resident Groups before your arrival to St Catherine's:

Inter-college sports

St Catherine's has won the inter-college sports Overall Championship Cup for the past three years.

In 2015, we also won the Women's Championship Cup.
In 2016, we also won the Men's Championship Cup and inaugural Spirit Cup.
In 2017, for the first time in the College history, we won the Women's Championship Cup, Men's Championship Cup and Spirit Cup!

Play your part and help us win the various inter-college sports cups again this year!

We pride ourselves on being a very supportive College and we always attend all sporting events in large numbers, which makes the experience so much more enjoyable for our athletes and spectators alike.

Exciting year ahead!

2018 is going to be a very exciting year at College! Over the holidays Bridie's was demolished and the ground is being prepared for the new building on the boundary of Trinity and St Cat's.

The Jull Common Room and the ME Wood Room have been transformed into two new social spaces including a pop-up Tuckshop, which provides healthy snacks and coffee as well as outdoor games, Wii and Foxtel.
