With a strong and proud history, we are committed to being a leader among university residential colleges in Australia.

St Mark’s is a community whose life comes from its members. St Mark’s College was founded in 1925 as the first university residential College in Adelaide. The College today combines the best of tradition with a modern and progressive outlook and is home to an active and vibrant student community of over 240 students. St Mark’s provides a complete university experience – one that is shaped by the opportunities to engage in the academic, community service, social, cultural, sporting, spiritual and intellectual life of a busy residential learning community.


A world enriched by the leadership of our College Community


We place importance on being a welcoming, diverse and inclusive community that:

  • promotes intellectual enquiry and rigour, a love of learning and a culture of continuous improvement
  • supports the well-being of each student to enjoy a healthy and happy College experience
  • fosters respectful relationships and lifelong friendships
  • expects personal and professional conduct characterised by fairness and integrity
  • encourages a willingness to serve others and to give back to the community in a spirit of thankfulness
  • cares about the environment and embraces the principles of ecological sustainability
  • values the vision of our founders, our Anglican foundation and the best traditions of the College
  • takes an active, progressive and outward-looking approach to life
