Live on campus

Collectively known as ‘College Row’, UWA’s five residential colleges are located directly opposite the University and provide you with a world-class living and learning environment.

College life is all about living and learning together

This vibrant combination, at the heart of residential college living, adds a valuable dimension to your degree and uniquely defines your time as a UWA student.

The residential colleges – St Catherine’s College, St George’s College, St Thomas More College, Trinity, and University Hall – are close-knit communities full of support, friendship and activity, and they offer the unique opportunity of a collegial experience.

It is the interaction between peers, senior students and academic and support staff in a collegiate environment, combined with the array of academic, cultural and social experiences and programs, which characterises the colleges and makes them distinctive educational settings.

There are roughly 2000 college students on campus along ‘College Row’. The five residential colleges are either owned by, or affiliated with, UWA and are all united in providing a rewarding college experience for students.

As centres of living and learning, the colleges are all-inclusive communities, full of opportunity, interaction and diversity.

At college we balance study with many other life experiences. We participate in sports, arts, dancing and singing, and there are always social events from formal dinners to coffee crawls. EMMA KITCHING
