Boarding Redevelopment


St Patrick’s College has completed a major project to ensure the long-term future of boarding in first-class, custom-built facilities for generations to come.

We have brought all our boarders together in one designated precinct in the north-west corner of the College where they have access to brand new, ultra-modern, spacious, comfortable and, most importantly in Ballarat, warm facilities. They live as one community, not as three or four separate houses. They learn, dine, study, play, relax and grow together. They have wonderful new amenities, both indoor and outside and now form their own vibrant community once again.

We welcome boys from across Australia in numbers that haven’t been seen here for two decades.

We ask you to consider assisting the College in this investment to secure boarding at St Patrick’s College for decades to come.
