Our Venues

The College offers multiple rooms and venues, catering to the complex requirements of many conferences.

The Dining Hall

The Dining Hall is one of Australia’s finest Neo-Gothic buildings. Wood paneling, stained glass windows, vaulted ceilings, open fireplaces, beautiful carved wooden tables and chairs and original candelabra create an impressive ambience. The Dining Hall is available for formal dinners on Friday and Saturday evenings from 7.30pm during University semester time, with more availability during University vacation periods.

Junior Common Room (JCR)

The Junior Common Room is a versatile set of spaces that can be utilised in a number of different configurations. First opened in 1923 it retains its original polished floorboards and dark wooden paneling. It is best suited to larger events and is often used for pre-dinner drinks or cocktail parties.

Chapel

The original College library was converted into the Chapel in the 1960s. Located on the second floor of the main building, the Chapel is equipped with an organ and choir stalls and is available for hire for all services (wedding ceremonies alumni only). High arched wooden ceilings, elegant leadlight windows, wooden paneling and wonderful acoustics, create a calming ambience.

Quadrangle

Surrounded by three story high Neo-Gothic walls of the main building, the cloistered Quadrangle is an unforgettable venue for a variety of events. The quadrangle is bordered by a small garden, has a terraced area partly sheltered by cloisters and two small raised lawns. The imposing sandstone walls are covered with lush green Virginia creeper in spring and summer and provide an enchanting environment for outdoor concerts, pre dinner drinks, BBQs, weddings and cocktail parties.

Parker Terrace

Protected on two sides by the tall sandstone walls of the main building, the Parker Terrace is a delightful area for summer entertaining. The terrace overlooks a large lawn, ideal for a marquee, and is bordered by manicured gardens and tall trees which provide partial shade from the sun. In fine weather the terrace can accommodate similar functions to the Quadrangle.

Kaye Scott Room

The Kaye Scott Room is part of the original main building and was first used as the College chapel. Heritage style carpet, warm wooden paneling, high ceilings and large double windows create an ideal space for a variety of functions. Two sets of double doors open into the adjoining JM Young Room to create more space or for use as a syndicate room. The Kaye Scott Room is best suited to seminars, board meetings, AGMs, pre-dinner drinks, cocktail parties, and standing or seated functions.

JM Young Room

Adjoining the Kaye Scott Room, the JM Young Room is a spacious room flooded with natural light. High ceilings and heritage style carpet mean it can be easily transformed to suit a range of events.

Frank Raleigh Room

The Frank Raleigh room is located near the Dining Hall and is equipped with a large meeting table. Natural light and comfortable seating make the Frank Raleigh an ideal space for board meetings or a syndicate room for small group discussions. It can accommodate a dinner or lunch for up to 12 people.

McCaughey Syndicate Rooms

There are four syndicate-style rooms in our McCaughey Court building equipped with group tables and whiteboard facilities. These rooms can accommodate groups of up to 8 people. In addition, the central room in McCaughey is suitable for seminar groups of up to 40 people.
