What is Shalom College ?

Shalom College at the University of New South Wales, is a friendly, supportive and academically-oriented residential college for both Jewish and non-Jewish students.

Who is Shalom College for?

It is a ‘home-away-from-home’ for students who want to live on campus, value learning and wish to grow as part of a community.


What else you need to know about Shalom College…


About 60% of our residents come from around Australia and about 40% are international students, typically from North America, Asia and Europe.  

There are six tutors-in-residence and an active residents’ society.  Many social, sporting, cultural and community-building activities are offered.

The College has a commitment to core values of integrity, learning, academic success, citizenship, respect and celebrating diversity and multiculturalism.  Its commitment to social justice is manifested in its award-winning Shalom Gamarada Indigenous Scholarship Program – which results in approximately 30 Indigenous students residing in College each year. 

With 130 residents, the College is an ideal size.  It’s small enough to be personal and to have a real sense of community but large enough not to be intrusive and to have diverse range of interesting students.

Our professional catering company, Chartwells, offers fresh, delicious, healthy meals with  a kosher option available for those requiring it.
