Students that attend BSSC will belong to one of four houses. Named after significant contributors to the college, the houses will be identified by their names and colours.

Freeman is red, Mackay is blue, Wilcock is gold and King is green. King and Freeman were the principals of the two schools that combined to form the Bendigo District High school in 1912. Wilcock was a Latin and Science teacher at the school and died while serving his country in World War One. Mackay was editor of the Bendigo Advertiser and president of the college advisory council for many years.

All staff and students are assigned to one of the houses which is led by a manager and three learning and engagement coordinators.

Students from all four houses are represented on student council and each house will hold fundraisers throughout the year.
