Residential School

On-campus intensives during the Semester Break

Residential Schools

Online (Distance) students have the opportunity to attend residential schools during semester breaks. Some are optional whilst others are compulsory. St Mark’s staff would love to meet online students and would encourage as many students as possible to come to the residential schools.

Preparing for your visit

Residential schools are held at St Mark’s campus in Barton, Canberra. There is no onsite accommodation available. Onsite parking is available from 8.30am during residential school. You’ll be supplied a St Mark’s Guide at residential school. It includes a site map, information about the campus, library opening times and local food options. We look forward to seeing you at the next residential!

“The residential was one of the best experiences so far. It was lovely to see people in ‘real life’ and to be part of a faith and learning community for the time we were all there.”
