St Paul’s College is a residential academic community for undergraduate men who are students of the University of Sydney, New South Wales. The College is at the centre of the University campus. From 2019, St Paul’s will offer postgraduate places for women and men, and continue to offer undergraduate places for men.
Good education involves being part of a learning community. Students operate in three types of learning community: the online community, which can be vast; the University, which is more immediate, but still big; and then there’s the smaller community of day-to-day experience. St Paul’s is powerful at that last level.
At Sydney University over one thousand students live on campus in residential colleges, a step away from lectures and also from the busy, vivid suburbs of Newtown and Glebe. Most students residing in the older college buildings are studying at undergraduate level, but they include postgraduate students and other senior scholars. All students in the new Graduate House will be studying at the postgraduate level, or be academics at the University.
At the core of the College experience are the friendships which form between young people of ability as they pursue varied university studies. So is the exhilarating process of learning together. At Paul’s that happens at all levels and across all levels.
