Burbury House: The student residence
Burbury House is the building that is home to The Hutchins School boarding program. Burbury House has undergone an extensive, multi-million dollar refurbishment that was completed in August 2011. Burbury House is currently home to 45 boys from Tasmania, other Australian states and overseas.

There are new shower and toilet facilities throughout the whole of Burbury House as well as change rooms and storage rooms for all boarders' convenience. The Alec Burbury Dining Room has been redecorated in a combination of traditional and modern decor, including an outdoor deck area for alfresco dining and the kitchen and catering facilities have a new design and fit-out. Boarders have after-school access to a variety of school tutorial, library and cultural facilities. Evening prep takes place in the state of the art Nettlefold Library on Monday evenings.
