Foundation Stone

Message from the Burgmann College Alumni Association President

Covid-19, the most impactful pandemic in a century, continued to deliver surprises in Burgmann’s 50th year. Rather than last year’s shutdown, Burgmann residents went into lockdown at the College. So close to lecture halls and the Burgmann bar and yet so far away, residents studied in their rooms and exercised in pairs. Thankfully the Burgmann spirit shone through with online entertainment and Covid safe activities quickly established to keep the community sane and safe.


Celebrating the foundation of the Burgmann experience

In 2021, Burgmann College celebrates 50 years as a premier provider of student residential accommodation. Last month, residents, alumni and friends gathered for the first highlight of the College’s 50th Anniversary calendar, the commemoration of our foundations.

The event on Wednesday 31 March was an opportunity to honour the day when, in 1968, then Minister for Education and Science, the Hon Malcolm Fraser, laid our College Foundation Stone.
