Intensives

On-campus intensives during the session break

Intensives

Online (Distance) students have the opportunity to attend intensives 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.

NOTE: In these unusual times, we recommend ensuring that your travel and accommodation terms and conditions are flexible in the event that we have to enforce changes or cancellations to our residential sessions

Preparing for your visit

LOCATION

If you haven’t been to St Mark’s before the street address is 15 Blackall St, Barton. If you travel from Kings Ave the second boom gate on the left (P1) is the St Mark’s carpark. Parking is free onsite and accessed through a boom gate that will open when tapped with your student card, or you can press a button for assistance from 8:30am. Your residential will be held in one of the classrooms of the main St Mark’s building on the right of the car park and you will need to sign in at the desk in the foyer as you enter. You will be directed to your classroom.

CATERING

There is a student kitchen at St Mark’s where you can help yourself to tea, coffee, milk and biscuits at any time. The kitchen also has a fridge, microwave, ovens, toaster, and sandwich press for your use. There are a few inexpensive snacks available in the kitchen also (eg cup-of-soup). Classes break each morning for chapel and morning tea and then for a lunch break of around 1 hour. There will be a catered lunch on at least one of the days of your residential so you should let your lecturer know if you have dietary restrictions so that we can cater properly. There are a number of cafés and a small supermarket nearby for other meals.

ACCOMMODATION

St Mark’s does not have any on-site accommodation, but we recommend one of the following options (some of which work best if you have your own car):

  1. Forrest Hotel and Apartments, 30 National Circuit, Forrest
  2. Ibis Styles Canberra, 203 Goyder Street, Narrabundah, 2604 Canberra, Australia
  3. Canberra, Short Term and Holiday Accommodation, 47 McMillan Crescent, Griffith, 2603 Canberra, Australia
  4. Abode, Narrabundah, 61 Jerrabomberra Avenue, Narrabundah, 2604 Canberra, Australia

We have a few options for private billeting, but that will need to be arranged ahead of time. In addition, there are a number of grants available to eligible CSU students to assist them in attending compulsory residential schools. Please contact Julia at our front office to explore these option.

What Our Students Say

“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.”
