Faith in Action: University
St George’s College, founded in 1931, is the oldest residential college at The University of Western Australia.
It has 218 residents, evenly divided between women and men, who all study undergraduate or postgraduate courses at The University of Western Australia.
College residents are supported by St George’s well-developed academic, tutorial, pastoral, and cultural programs and systems. These enrich the lives of its residents and provide them with opportunities and experiences in an encouraging and well-managed environment.
The College has a blend of residents from regional Western Australia, metropolitan Perth, overseas and interstate.
St George’s is located directly opposite UWA and between the Swan River and King’s Park. Its original buildings and chapel, in the Victorian Gothic Revival style, represent one of the most attractive and important precincts of historical buildings in Western Australia. The College also has heritage-listed gardens that frame its buildings.
The College is an Anglican foundation that was established pursuant to a major bequest by Sir Winthrop Hackett, first Chancellor of The University of Western Australia, who died in 1916.
Students from every background are welcome at St George’s and add to the diversity of skills and outlooks that the College encourages.
