Shalom College is an inclusive, academic and personal community, established in 1973. Located right on the UNSW Campus, the College is home to 133 students, both undergraduate and postgraduates, from a wide range of backgrounds and studying across all faculties.

At Shalom we celebrate diversity and welcome residents from all backgrounds, faiths, affiliations and countries. Our values of community, learning and giving are inspired by the Jewish foundations of the college.

We attract students who want to succeed in their studies and our resident academic tutors and collegiate culture help to achieve this. Our staff and resident advisors focus on supporting resident well-being and cultural opportunities, and our active resident society organises social and sporting activities.
