Shape Tomorrow: Graduate House

Graduate House

St Paul’s College is building upon its distinguished heritage by creating a distinctive new ‘Graduate House’ community for postgraduate students and academics, both women and men, from Australia and around the world.

The Graduate House community, to be made up of 140 residents, will be unique within the University of Sydney and is scheduled to open in January 2019.

Residents will enjoy a unique experience of university life, in a beautiful physical environment in the “Oxbridge” style, with an unparalleled combination of facilities and programmes of higher value and at lower comparable cost than available alternatives.

Graduate House will offer secure collegiate facilities suitable for independent-style living, with high quality academic and student studio apartments, while also having access to substantial communal facilities. Some accommodation will be suitable for couples.
