A range of facilities is provided to enhance your child's boarding experience.
At Albany Residential College, your child has their own room with a single bed, a study desk, a pin board and shelves for books and personal items, as well as a closet and heater. The rooms are located in separate male and female wings and each wing is divided into year group dorms. We have a very strict policy of male students not entering the female students’ area and vice versa. Communal bathrooms are available in each dorm with multiple showers, sinks and toilets.
For the safety of your child, electric blankets are not permitted in students’ rooms and we have smoke detectors and alarm systems throughout the College. Each dorm has an emergency phone which connects to the office and our on call staff. The phone can also be used to receive phone calls from parents.
Our College has several modern common rooms with the upper and lower school male and female students having separate areas to relax in. Each area has a TV with access to Netflix, which is operated by a supervisor, as well as comfortable couches and a kitchenette.
Computers are available in each room to allow students to do homework and can be used for leisure, outside of study hours.
There is also a communal common room which is fitted with a pool table, table tennis table, fooseball machine, TV and gaming console corner. Your child is encouraged to spend time with friends, play games and hang out when not studying.
Your child has access to their own indoor recreation shed on the College grounds where they can play basketball, netball and other sporting activities. There are also the outdoor courts and oval area at the adjacent Albany Senior High School, which we encourage them to use.
Albany Residential College provides a bus service to and from school for students who attend North Albany Senior High School, Bethal Christian School and Saint Joseph’s Catholic College.
Supervisors use the bus to take students to their sporting commitments, appointments and activities after school and on the weekends.

For those students attending North Albany Senior High School, Bethal Christian School and Saint Joseph’s Catholic College, a bus service is provided before and after school daily.
