When accepting a place at a residential college, parents agree to pay the $14,823 boarding fee which covers the bed, meals, facilities, and pastoral care of each student.

For overseas students the boarding fee is $25,625.

In addition to the boarding fee, amounts are required to cover individual services which may be provided for students. Individual services may include, but are not limited to, extras such as uniforms, tutoring, counselling, transport, medical services, medical supplies, camps and outings.

Parents may be eligible for allowances or subsidies which can reduce costs. To find out more about your eligibility for these allowances and subsidies, download the Residential college costs factsheet.

In 2024, eligible families in regional and remote areas may be able to access support for boarding costs from the Commonwealth Regional Scholarship Program.
