St John’s College within the University of Sydney is an academic community founded in the tradition of Catholic commitment to university education.
St John’s College is more than just accommodation, it is a community which nurtures the personal wellbeing and academic achievement of its community.
The extensive tutorial program is the centre of academic life at St John’s, while guest speakers further the intellectual and spiritual development of students.
The personal well-being of students is just as important as their academic achievement. A vital source of support for tertiary students is their peers. For this reason the senior college officers work closely with elected student leaders as well as other senior students in promoting physical and mental health in the College. This creates multiple avenues for students who might be struggling personally to speak with a peer or member of staff, or consult professional services on the university campus or in the wider Sydney community.
St John’s College also provides a Non-residential Program for students who wish to remain living at home or in share accommodation, but seek the advantage of being part of a leading co-ed collegiate experience while studying at the University of Sydney.
