Ormond has a great tradition of preparing people from all walks of life to make a difference in the world. In the 21st century that mission is more important than ever as the world faces an extraordinary set of challenges - from solving climate challenges, and closing national and international poverty gaps - to creating humane cities and improving people’s well-being. Through the quality of our student life and our academic program we prepare our residents to make a difference in the world.
Our student life provides abundant opportunities for students to lead, whether in drama, sport, community service or organising social events. We also believe that learning to live well in a community of more than 300 people is an education in itself!
Our academic program not only supports the work students undertake at the University but increasingly provides people with an opportunity to learn about, and personally engage in, the tackling of global challenges.
Newman College is a Roman Catholic co-educational residential College affiliated with the University of Melbourne. The Society of Jesus is responsible for the administration of the College.
The College's fundamental purpose is to foster the intellectual, ethical and spiritual life of its members, to enable them to become effective leaders in the community, mature in faith and committed to justice. The College seeks to assist its members in achieving the highest standards in their personal lives, in their studies and in the professions they will enter, standards based on Christian values and showing a genuine compassion and respect for others.
Newman College espouses the humane, religious and cultural values of the Roman Catholic Church, but students of other traditions are welcomed and encouraged.
All students of the College enjoy the opportunity to maintain an active spiritual life. The College Chaplain, the four resident Jesuit priests and members of staff ensure that the spiritual, religious and pastoral needs of the students are met.
Founded on the traditions of the world’s great collegiate universities, Trinity College in the University of Melbourne has been transforming students’ lives since 1872.
In all its diverse programs, Trinity promotes academic excellence, but also encourages students to extend their education far beyond the classroom.
As a result, the richness of student life sets the benchmark for collegiate education in Australia.
Opportunities abound for students to explore new interests and pursue their extra curricular passions – be they musical, sporting, cultural, spiritual, entrepreneurial, or in the areas of leadership and social responsibility. The breadth and depth of these opportunities, supported by extensive student welfare and pastoral care structures, and the diversity of students' backgrounds, nurtures the development of well-rounded individuals, able and willing to lead and serve, locally, nationally or internationally.
Trinity’s distinguished alumni network of over 15,000 individuals – including 37 Rhodes Scholars – have made their mark in academia, business, the professions, the church, governments and communities in some 60 countries around the world..
Since 1886 Janet Clarke Hall has provided a close, supportive and academically stimulating environment for students coming from Melbourne, the country, interstate and overseas. Among the first institutions of its kind in the worldto accept women students into residence, the College has long stood for equality of access and opportunity, for women and for men, in a full and rewarding university education.
