Despite living on the other side of Queensland in the Torres Strait, the congenial atmosphere at St Leo’s College quickly made it my 2nd home. The unforgettable times with mates simply cannot be replicated; boarding school didn’t even come close.
One's experience at a university college like many institutions falls back on the age old saying: ‘what you put in, is what you get out’, and Leo’s is no different. Leo’s provides both the method and the means for one to pursue their academic ambitions at university, socialize with some of the best mates you’ll make in life and participate in a diverse exhibition of both sporting and cultural opportunities, whether that’s on the field or off. Always living on campus is also an unparalleled blessing that won’t be appreciated until you’ve made the mistake of waking up 5 minutes before an 8 o’clock class. The environment fostered at Leo’s has never left me asking for more.

The Inter-College Council (ICC) enables and encourages students to participate in competitive sports and other cultural activities. These include but aren't limited to debating, Bandfest, Choralfest, Dance Fest and many more. The competition runs through both semesters.
Our annual Academic Dinners celebrate the achievements of our residents.
Living on campus is not only convenient, it is also a very safe option.
You'll always have fellow residents from Leo's and other Colleges to work with and travel to classes with. Not that you have to travel far!
