The advantage of living at Graduate House is that meals are included in your rent. This means that you can study, research and work without having to worry about food shopping, cooking and cleaning the dishes.

Graduate House offers a combined accommodation/meals package for Resident Members. This includes breakfast seven (7) mornings a week and dinner five (5) nights a week (Monday to Friday). On public holidays, breakfast only is provided.

Our culinary team is in-house and aims always to serve a variety of healthy, nutritious and tasty meals from our well-equipped and modern main kitchen. Each weekday a different menu is offered for lunch and dinner. View Today’s Menu.

We cater for the majority of commonly requested dietary requirements. Our daily menu has vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options. Please contact Graduate House in advance so that we can advise you of our capacity to provide for your needs and so that we may prepare in advance.

Resident Members

Our Resident Members are from all over Australia and the world. Our equally diverse culinary team is expertly trained in preparing meals from all cuisines, and for all dietary requirements. This ensures that our Resident Members are offered a taste of home and that we can receive and prepare their favourite recipes.

Invite Others

Resident Members are welcome to invite friends and associates to Graduate House to catch up over a meal in the dining room or have a drink at our bar. Although these guests will be charged non-member prices for meals and beverages, they can join Graduate House as non-resident Members to enjoy the benefits of this Association. 

Resident Kitchen

Self-catering facilities are available for Resident Members on the ground floor of the terraces in a communal kitchen. For the sole use of Residents, this kitchen is the source of the frequent cultural dinners organised by the Graduate House Resident Group.
