Life at College
Ready for College life
At Women’s, you’ll quickly discover that College life is central to your university experience. Much more than a place to sleep, Women’s will be your social base and a place to call home. While you’ll have your own room, the communal areas are where you’ll develop lasting friendships.
Whether studying side-by-side for exams or enjoying some down time in the lounge, Women’s residents (or ‘Woozas’ as you affectionately become) are united by a desire to learn what the world has to offer them and what they have to offer the world.
A nurturing and supportive environment is created by the Head of College and her team. The Deputy Head of College provides pastoral care support to all students, while a Senior Resident and Resident Assistants, themselves senior women, live alongside residents, offering friendship and guidance.
Academic support is available through the academic tutorial program and our superb facilities ensure you have access to everything you need to succeed in your studies.
You’ll also be encouraged to pursue your interests outside of study. Social functions are organised throughout the year and the cultural program, including drama, choir, and debating, offers something for all tastes. Women's also enjoys a strong sporting tradition with 17 sports on offer through the Intercollege Council Competition.
Women’s provides an intimate environment dedicated to personal and intellectual discovery among like-minded women. Life at Women’s is truly an exceptional experience.
The Women's College Equity Pledge
Women's College is a place to celebrate and appreciate the diversity, talents and quirks of the people we share our home with.
We, the residents of Women's, pledge to create a safe environment where everybody is on the same playing field and is treated with respect and dignity.
We will ensure that while increasing awareness of important issues, we are welcoming and empathetic of all perspectives. We will exemplify this in events such as Wellness Week and Straight-Up Chat. Fundamentally, we pledge to maintain this attitude in our day-to-day lives.
We commit to fostering an open and accepting atmosphere, where we adopt an open mind and willingness to learn - from each other and our mistakes - in order to make all Woozas feel valued and empowered. Through curiousity and non-judgement we commit to the inclusion, respect and growth of each and every Wooza, no matter who.
It is by this that we pledge to build a beautiful and diverse culture inside ourselves and our community.
We commit to the challenge. We commit to you. In all aspects of life at Women's, we pledge - NEVER LEAVE A WOOZA BEHIND
