The investment has tranformed the way the College's 60 boarding students live and study with greater privacy, new technology and stylish and functional common areas.
The Director of Boarding, Mr Michael Vickery, says the contemporary transformation has not only improved the look and feel of the boarding house, but has enhanced the safety, security and wellbeing of Rostrevor's boarding students.
"There are spacious living areas in several separate wings of the boarding house, many more bathrooms, and almost every student has his own secure bedroom and study area."
Head Prefect Darcy McKenny, from Naracoorte in the South East, said Rostrevor College was now "right up there" with the best boarding accommodation in South Australia.
"Some other boarding houses still have two or three people sharing a room," he said. "We have our own lockable rooms with an air-conditioner that can be set to how you like it. The rooms are great for studying as there are less distractions and you can have personal conversations with your family back home.
"The architects have made it look very modern and up to date. We have brand new bathrooms and lots of common rooms which are large, open spaces where you can relax. The Year 11 common room has a large TV and pool table where I can spend time with my mates."
