Mandelbaum House is the newest and most modern residential college at the University of Sydney. We accommodate 36 students and offer a warm and stimulating environment, open to both men and women, regardless of religion or nationality.

Our small size creates a caring and secure environment, where our residents are able to make good friends while concentrating on their studies. The mix of backgrounds and fields of study amongst our residents provides a valuable inter-cultural connection.

The college boasts bright decor and stylish features. Residents have fully furnished single bedrooms that include a large  study desk, basin, internet access and a private telephone line. We also have a well equipped games room, library and several lounge and kitchenette areas throughout the college.

We are a short walk to most lecture rooms, public transport and  the Sports & Aquatic Centre as well as to King Street which boasts a diverse range of shops, restaurants and cafés.  Sydney’s new home for contemporary arts and culture, Carriageworks, is conveniently located around the corner.

We value learning and host lectures and seminars given by prominent scholars and members of the Jewish and university community. Throughout the academic year visiting scholars from various disciplines  stay in our guest apartment.
