Barkley Hall provides a friendly and happy environment of community living that is “a home away from home”. Every member of our community has the opportunity to grow in all aspects of life: knowledge, wisdom, belief, service and love.
After the busyness of a day at Uni it’s great to come to the evening meal to talk and share. Students can relax in the Lounge or Rec Rooms with TV, table tennis and other games. Events and activities are also organised by the House Parents from time to time.
Barkley Hall’s house parents Stuartt and Tamara live on-site and facilitate the operation of the residence. They welcome and integrate new residents amongst the community and bring a friendly home environment to the accommodation. Stuartt and Tamara have lived overseas and are familiar and empathetic to the surroundings of new languages, cultures and people. They provide pastoral care as required, oversee devotions and provide after-hours assistance to any needs the students might have.
