As one of Australia’s leading independent girls’ schools, MLC has a proud tradition of welcoming boarders from rural and regional areas as well as from countries all around the world.


Our Tiddeman Boarding House offers a home away from home for approximately 120 Year 7 to Year 12 students, providing an exciting journey for boarders to experience new opportunities, create new friendships and learn independence. We are located just 8km from the cultural vibrancy of Melbourne’s CBD, dubbed the ‘world’s most liveable city’. The bustling urban centre of Hawthorn is also on our doorstep with multiple public transport options, health services and leisure activities only minutes’ walk away.

Tiddeman Boarding House was renovated at the start of 2017 and combines tradition with contemporary living and technology, creating a warm and supportive environment. Living spaces include communal areas with modern facilities, an Art & Mindfulness space, Reading Room, Study and Gym, as well as the state-of-the-art facilities of the main College. We provide an environment that offers the balance of flexibility and structure, privacy and connection. Students become independent and learn to self-manage, whilst leadership skills are developed through our Boarding Leader group, our boarding buddy system and of course through countless opportunities within the whole College.
