Much more than just a world-class military college, RMC is a dynamic community that nurtures the leaders of tomorrow. Everything you need is available from advanced training facilities to a gym, pool, courts, numerous sports fields, shops, bars, entertainment facilities, and plenty of other areas to relax and make new friends.
The museums, galleries, restaurants and bars of Canberra are just a stone's throw away; and at night the city comes alive with clubs, theatre, festivals, live music and more.

Stay in or head out
Because peace and privacy matter, you'll have your own secure room at RMC with bathroom facilities and plenty of storage. The building you're in will also have a laundry and recreation room.
But when you're not studying or resting, you'll be training, eating and socialising with a great bunch of like-minded mates, sharing experiences and bonding for life. One thing all RMC cadets proudly keep after graduation, is their friendships.
Take a break
RMC holiday periods give you plenty of opportunity to relax and return home to see family and friends. The leave you'll be given every three months includes one week off mid-semester, two weeks off at the end of semester and four weeks over Christmas. To make it even easier to see family, the Army will pay for you to travel home once a year.
