Unparalleled Boarding Facilities

Columba College is opening the pages on another new chapter with the creation of a purpose-built Boarding Village with the 21st century boarder in mind.

Stage One will include the development of a light, airy, inviting 46-bed boarding facility. This purpose-built space will offer open, modern communal spaces with single or double rooms and individual bathrooms to provide boarders with a living and learning environment that is second to none – complete with spa pools! 

The new facility will be situated on site, where International House, year 13 House and the intermediate playground are currently located to retain our on-site boarding facilities within the wider campus. This development will offer easy access from Sargood Street, the convenience of school facilities on the doorstep and the warmth of a family atmosphere

The College has teamed with Parker Warburton Architects to create this special environment. Construction is anticipated to start near the end of Term 2 2021 and be completed near the end of Term 3 2022.

When Stage One has been completed, it provides the opportunity to repurpose Katharine Buchan House for our Middle School, so that students in Years 7-10 can experience a state-of-art, bespoke learning environment suited to the needs of Columba learners.

These are exciting innovations and we encourage you to keep helping us write our story.
