Yesterday hundreds of alumni, students, and friends of the College joined us to mark the official opening of the Ivan Head and McMillan Buildings.
The buildings were opened by the Chancellor of the University, Ms Belinda Hutchinson AM, and were dedicated by the Most Rev’d Dr Glenn Davies, Archbishop of Sydney.
The opening was an opportunity to warmly thank all of those who contributed to the success of the project.
In a speech of welcome, the 11th Warden of the College, Dr Don Markwell, expressed the College’s deep gratitude for all of those who contributed to the project. Read the Warden’s speech here.
The Ivan Head Building, named for former Warden of the College, the Rev’d Dr Ivan Head, has allowed the College to offer 100 new places for undergraduate students in state-of-the-art student accommodation, providing access to a collegiate undergraduate experience for more students.
The McMillan Building contains Graduate House, a new residential academic community for women and men postgraduate students and academics of the University.
The McMillan Building is named for College alumnus Mr Stephen McMillan. Read more about the College’s announcement of the naming of the building here.
