Earle Page Accommodation

College facilities

Our abundant communal spaces bring people together, yet provide quiet space for study and time out. We have a laptop bar and a newly renovated Junior Common Room with couches and big screen TV. Our impressive Dining Hall, (or ‘D-Hall’), is the backbone of our college where we eat dinners together, and hold our formal dinners and functions.  The open lawns and courtyards are a unique feature of Page, and provide the perfect spot for sporting and leisure activities. Plus there's plenty of near-by parking.

Dining Hall

Earle Page has a large, traditional dining hall that has been the centre of college life for 50 years, providing a venue for events, everyday conversation, and group study. Communal dinners are a large part of the college experience, and at Earle Page floor groups traditionally dine together creating a friendly family environment, enhancing your dining experience and connection to your fellow collegians.

Past residents quote our Dining Hall as a ‘unique space to Page’ that enables the 54 years of tradition, namely formal dinners, to live on in all of their glory, and for us to meet of an evening to share a meal and talk about the day. Our family oriented college means you will always have someone to eat with.

What to bring to college

Community

Whether you’re a gardener from way back, studying sustainability or just like the idea of playing in the dirt with new and old friends, this might just become your new ‘zen zone’. EPC's Community Garden is the first of its kind on campus, and is still in the creation stages which is exciting for our residents.

Our Sustainability Officer is looking to make this a creative and vibrant space for our community in the coming year so watch this space! We’re talking composting, worm farming, vege gardens and hopefully some Page produced artwork…bring your ideas and passion to this new and exciting project.
