Inspired by Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne and the Society of the Sacred Heart, our mission is to provide a safe, nurturing and caring environment for young women undertaking their university studies in Brisbane, an environment in which they are encouraged to explore their faith, achieve their full academic potential and live a full life as a member of this community.
Duchesne College is a residential college for 216 female students. Although we are a Catholic college, our students come from a range of backgrounds and faiths in rural and regional Queensland, northern NSW and overseas. Duchesne offers a high level of pastoral care in a supportive environment to young women as they make the transition from school to university life.
