Every Monday night all students are required to attend the formal dinner by candlelight – a tradition at the College since 1947.

St Ann’s kitchen team is a great source of pride to the College, winning many awards.

Monday Formal Dinner

Each Monday, the College gathers in the main Dining Hall for the traditional candle-lit Formal Dinner.

This weekly event has been taking place since St Ann’s College was opened in 1947.

It is a semi-formal affair with the Principal, Residential Advisors and College Club seated on a raised head table, and students seated at tables below. The tables are spread with white cloth and lit by candles, lending something of a hallowed atmosphere.

As per tradition, the dinner begins with a Latin benediction read by the Principal, followed by the reading of College news and announcements.

The three-course meal is then served – seasoned with plenty of socialising, laughter and good times!

S t Ann’s College is located in historic North Adelaide. Ringed by parklands, North Adelaide is part of the city’s original design as laid out by Colonel William Light in 1836.

College is a 10-15 minute walk from the City Centre. We are the closest college to Adelaide University (a 15-minute walk) and University of South Australia (a 25-minute walk).

There is a free bus that travels directly from St Ann’s College into the city and back each day; students can use the inner city’s free tram services to connect to both universities.

Nearly all metropolitan bus services start and finish within the city; the Adelaide Railway Station is 20 minutes’ walk. Both offer regular services to Flinders University. From the city there are multiple buses that will take you to Flinders and it might depend where at the campus study is taking place as to which bus route to take. The most direct route is probably the 719, 721F, 722F which take about 30 minutes from the city.

There is also a Flinders loop bus to grab to get from one end of the campus to the other if you wish. Click here for more information.
