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.
Mandelbaum Update: 25 June 2015
A small fire broke out at a nearby construction site at the University of Sydney at around 3am on 25 June. All residents and the onsite CEO followed established college evacuation procedures, which worked smoothly. They spent a short time in the nearby University Services Building, and returned back to the college without incident.
