Facilities and location

Located on Carillon Avenue, Newtown, within the University of Sydney campus, and only three kilometres from the city centre, the College comprises a collection of buildings constructed between 1892 and 2018. The facilities are purpose built to ensure that the students have everything they need to make the most of their university experience.

The College has five residential wings. Most students have their own rooms but there is a small capacity for shared rooms. The College also has many areas for study, relaxing and socialising.
