Boarding House

A state-of-the-art home away from home

The Boarding House is on the Perth College campus in the tree-lined suburb of Mount Lawley. It’s close to airports, bus and train terminals, and major transport routes. Boarders are only a five-minute walk from the heart of Mount Lawley and just 3km from the Perth CBD, allowing easy access to recreation attractions, events and personal appointments.

Premium spaces and facilities

Our Boarding House is nearing the end of a three-year modernisation program and includes recently renovated common areas and recreational spaces, as well as our new Boarders’ Dining Hall.

The Boarding House facilities also include a computer lab, various kitchenettes for the girls to use, dining areas, modern bathrooms, laundries, movie rooms, lounge rooms, common rooms and outdoor spaces for study, recreation and relaxing. Our boarders also have access to Excelsior House (our Senior Leadership and Learning Centre) for prep and study time as well as meals.


Girls in Years 7 and 8 share four-bed dorm-style accommodation, while those in Years 9 to 12 may enjoy individual rooms with their own study space subject to availability. Each boarder can personalise her bedroom with her favourite photographs, books, posters, music and mementoes.

Dining and Meals

Ask any of our current boarders and they will promptly give the tick of approval to the meal selection they are offered each day. Our chefs understand the importance of nutrition for adolescent girls and also flexible meal times to accommodate co-curricular activites. There is a great variety available, with menus changing regularly. Special dietary requirements are also catered for.

Our Chartwells - Perth College catering team won the Site/Industrial Caterer Award at the Restaurant and Catering Association Awards for Excellence in 2021.
