Mt Erin Boarding House provides students from the Riverina and beyond with the opportunity to complete their Catholic secondary school studies in Wagga Wagga. The Boarding House is incorporated into Kildare Catholic College and seeks to continue the long and excellent boarding tradition established by the Presentation Sisters at Mt Erin Boarding School. The Boarding House at Kildare provides weekday boarding  for girls and boys in Years 7-12 attending either Kildare Catholic College or Mater Dei Catholic College.

For transport to and from home each weekend, there are four boarders’ bus runs travelling via Adelong to Tumut, via Temora and West Wyalong to Lake Cargelligo, via Darlington Point to Griffith and via Bethungra to Cootamundra. This allows students from these areas to continue their Catholic education through to Year 12. There is also transport available on normal school buses to Lockhart, Galore, The Rock, Gundagai, Junee, Tarcutta, Coolamon, Ganmain and Marrar.

Town transport operates daily from the boarding house to Mater Dei in Lake Albert for those students choosing this option. Boarders attending Kildare have just a short walk to the College located on the same grounds.

There are periods of supervised study each evening and there are tutors on hand to assist boarders with their homework and assignments.

The Kildare Catholic College Resource Centre is open from 8.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Thursday and may be accessed by all boarders.

During the school week boarding students are able to attend music lessons, orchestra practice, sport and sports training and practices for College productions. Transfer to and from these activities is provided by the boarding house vehicle. The boarding students also enjoy the use of College facilities such as the swimming pool, basketball courts and the new multipurpose hall.
