Student wellbeing is the highest priority for the College. Students are encouraged to maintain a healthy balance between their academic studies, paid work, recreation and sleep.
Senior students and Residential Advisors are placed in each area of the College to provide immediate support to all students. The College's Pastoral Care Program is under the guidance of the Deputy Warden. Working with the Warden, the program is given the highest priority in maintaining an open door policy for all students to discuss issues of concern, all within careful parameters of confidentiality.
The Senior Common Room (SCR) is responsible for academic standards and welfare of the students of the College. The SCR comprises the Warden, Deputy Warden, Dean of Studies, Tutors, Residential Advisors and Senior Students within the College.
The College is implementing a holistic care system that takes into account the need for members of its residential community to have both rights and responsibilities. The aims are:
- To promote student growth academically, personally, spiritually, communally
- To ensure that the College is a place where students can actively and collaboratively participate in all areas of College life
In addition to the College's Pastoral Care Team, the Warden and Deputy Warden are positioned to make informed and appropriate referrals to local health care and other services. The Melbourne University Counselling Service offers free counselling to all university students and staff, while respecting people’s diversity.
