Dining Hall

In Cistercian College the provision of food and drink is very important. We place a high level of emphasis on the food and drink that are provided and appreciate the importance in the quality, preparation and delivery of the food and drink to the students in the College. We offer a comprehensive menu from breakfast through until late night snack that supports each student to participate fully in all spiritual, academic, sporting and musical activities. Our menu is focused on providing a balanced and nutritional diet for our students. As such our dedicated staff cater for all student and staff dietary needs.



The College proudly boasts a separate Residence Hall for both Junior and Senior students. Junior House caters for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Year students while Senior House caters for TY, 5th and 6th Years. Residence Hall life is at the heart of the Cistercian College experience. Here students will share a space with a number of classmates and friends. In our residence we care about light, space and cleanliness.

The College team of Housemasters oversee and supervise within the Halls of Residence. Under the guidance of the Housemaster, the Halls of Residence are happy, safe and home like environments where individual students feel included, respected and valued. Here fellow students become lifelong friends, teammates and supporters.

The Halls of Residence are the place where lifelong connections are forged. Students come together from a variety of backgrounds to make friends, share their talents and interests and live like a family. Friendships built here continue for a lifetime.
