Welcome to Newman College
Located on leafy Swanston Street in Parkville, Newman College is a co-educational residential College affiliated with the University of Melbourne. The College primarily accepts students studying at the University of Melbourne, but also has limited places for those studying at RMIT, ACU and Monash (Pharmacy). With modern facilities, tutorials, and scholarships, the College encourages a standard of excellence in studies, while sport, music, drama, art and community service opportunities foster the variety of gifts to be found in College life.

Speak to any Newman College student present or past and they will mention the lasting friendships that are made in this community. These are part of what is at the heart of this community. They are forged in common endeavours in the Dining Room, sports arenas, concerts, soirees, productions, tutorials, cafes, pubs, performances, and much more.
Complementing this and linking with the community of the spirit, are student’s engagements in community service within and without the College community.
The tutorial programme and the academic mentoring (formal and informal) work to clarify and extend students' understanding of their university courses.
Wider intellectual development is fostered through our extensive outreach programme, Scholar’s Presentations, guest speakers at functions, and the often ad hoc intellectual excursions that can happen during meals and in conversations in the community.
Our environment – the buildings, the art works and the people – surround us with examples of great imagination. Opportunities abound in art, music, plays, poetry, prose and science to let one’s imagination loose to roam and explore.
Newman College espouses the humane and cultural values of the Roman Catholic Church, but students of any faith, or of none, are particularly welcomed and encouraged. All students of the College enjoy the opportunity to maintain an active spiritual life should they choose.
