Aldridge currently operates from a small house in Auchenflower and there is a growing need for a larger site.
In the near future we would like to begin a small university student residence providing full board accommodation in a truly homely setting. Good study facilities and proximity to universities will make it an attractive place to study and to relax. It is envisaged that a wide variety of activities would be organised during the year which complement life at university and help students both to enjoy and get the most out of their time at university.
The new residence would also seek provide a study and activity centre for high school students, plus be able to host activities of spiritual formation for young professionals and older adult men.
There are similar student residence both around Australia (e.g. Drummond Study Centre, Melbourne) and across the world.
Anthony, a graduate student in Montreal, Canada, speaks how the formation he receives at Riverview Residence, an Opus Dei centre, helps him find God in his studies and friendships.
