Students attending the Western Australian School of Mines and the Goldfields Institute of Technology will soon have a new and expanded student accommodation facility.

Royalties for Regions (Skills Training Initiative) and Curtin University have contributed $20 million and $10 million respectively for the Agricola College student accommodation.
