Meals and dining
St Leo’s operates a catering business within the College so it will come as no surprise meals are one of the highlights here!
Three meals are served per day with menus published one week in advance. Both cooked and continental breakfast options are available, hot and cold meals plus salads and fruit are available for lunch with different options for dinner. Any Residents who cannot get back to the College for lunch or dinner can request a packed lunch or late meal to be kept for them.
We cater for all dietary requirements including all allergies, intolerances and cultural requirements such as Halal meals.
We also have a Late Meals Room which is open from early to late. There is toast, hot and cold drinks, fruit, and ice cream etc. so that no one goes hungry at Leo’s.
Formal dinners are held eight times per year. These dinners include Commencement, Anzac, Opera and The Valete Dinner. Formal dinners are community-wide celebrations and at them you’ll hear from distinguished speakers and get the chance to meet with former Residents engaged in their respective professional careers.
Cleaning and Laundry
All rooms are cleaned once per week and shared bathrooms are cleaned daily by College staff so Residents get used to seeing their friendly faces. (Ensuite bathrooms are cleaned twice per week).
Clean sheets are provided to Residents once per week. We do ask you to strip the bed and remake it however the washing and drying is done for you.
Clothes can be laundered in one of two laundries within the College. Tokens for the washers and dryers cost $1.50 each and are sold at our reception. Washing powder is also sold at reception or you can provide your own.
