In the United States and around the world, students look forward to a grand adventure upon graduating from high school: the college experience. They consider this an adventure because it not only takes courage to move away from home but also provides a newfound sense of freedom, accomplishment and community.
Living in shared accommodation with like-minded people your own age is central to the college experience. It affords students the chance to explore, wrestle with deep questions, have fun, participate in late night conversations about big issues and build lifelong friendships. Campion offers this traditional college experience in Australia and we approach residential life and social life as integral parts of your liberal arts education.
Types of accommodation

The male and female residential dormitories are entirely separate from one another, situated on opposite sides of the college’s main building. All rooms are single, air-conditioned bedrooms with access to a communal bathroom in each wing.
Campion College also provides shared accommodation in single-sex residential halls located on-site.

- Commencing students – 18 weeks (including Orientation Week, mid-semester break, study week and exam periods)
- Returning students – 17 weeks (including mid-semester break, study week and exam periods)
All students – 17 weeks (including mid-semester break, study week and exam periods)
Please note: Students are required to vacate their rooms for the break between Semester 1 and Semester 2, during which time they will not be charged for accommodation. Should any student wish to stay on campus during this time (or other times outside of the academic year), they may apply in writing, and will be charged a daily rate (food not included).
Students are required to pay a $700 bond for a room to be allocated to them. This bond will be refunded when students permanently leave College accommodation. Any debts owing or expenses for damage to College property will be deducted from the bond.
Students who are offered and accept a place in college accommodation are required to commit on a per semester basis. This means that students are liable to pay residential fees for the full semester. If students decide not to live on campus in the following semester, the College should be informed in writing by the end of the previous semester, or at least 4 weeks before the semester begins.
Fees for accommodation are normally payable on a monthly basis (on the 15th of each month).
The Financial Guarantee form needs to be completed for all residential students. If a student fails to make a payment/payments, their financial Guarantor will be required to pay the outstanding fees.
The college seeks to foster a safe, warm and friendly environment. Students describe Campion as a welcoming community — a family away from home.
Campion’s Student Wellbeing Team is a vital partner in the education process at Campion. The Team know the students personally and provide professional support services, assisting with issues related to accommodation, study techniques, time management, health, special needs, and pastoral care.
Referrals to nearby medical, dental and counselling services can all be organised within the College. The College Chaplaincy team is also regularly available to assist students.
Campion College students of all year levels are housed in each type of accommodation. The integration of students from across year levels fosters personal growth and maturity, deepening of relationships, and development of Christian virtues. It also provides leadership opportunities for senior students.
Each College House and College Dormitory is assigned a Residential Tutor who is a senior student of the College. Their primary role is to assist with the personal formation of each student, and to ensure that the accommodation is safe, secure and harmonious.
Residential Tutors, who live on-site, serve as role models for the students in their care. They are available to assist the students with settling into college life, and provide support throughout the year. Apart from being a personal support to students, the Residential Tutors also help to plan and implement social activities for the residents.
All Residential Tutors meet regularly, and are under the direct supervision of the Senior Residential Tutor, who is a member of staff.
