Named for Carey's fifth Principal, Dr Ross Millikan, the Millikan Centre is home to Senior School classes, especially science, art and design technology.
Architecturally, this building reflected existing Carey structures – especially through the use of the stone which features around the campus and, notably, on the Carey sign at the main entrance on Barkers Road – but also has its own character. The interior set new standards in classroom design and provided great scope for the delivery of Carey’s expanding curriculum.
The building houses science laboratories, a humanities centre, graphics, media studios and a 120-seat multipurpose lecture theatre named in honour of former staff member, Russell Costello.
Tennis courts, maintenance sheds, the Scout Hall and the School petrol bowser all once occupied the site.
The Millikan Centre was the first building at Carey to have wi-fi installed.
