Welcome to Mandelbaum House, the University of Sydney’s smallest, newest and most modern residential college. What sets us apart from the alternatives?
Our boutique scale (only 38 residents) makes our service and support exceptional. You’re part of the family.
No cliques, no initiations, no hazing. We’re outward looking and don’t try to impose any kind of dominant culture. Be you.
We’re serious about providing fresh, healthy food to fit with all dietary preferences. That includes being the university’s only Kosher college.
Our community is a diverse mix of nationalities, genders and cultures. We respect, celebrate and enjoy all cultural and religious traditions.
We’re only interested in helping you make the most of your time at university. We do not lock you into a 52 week contract. Our contracts are for 39 weeks (shorter for one semester students) with an option to extend.
Whether you’re Jewish or not (most of our students aren’t) this means great values like community, self-expression, academic excellence and excellent bagels.
We’re centrally located next to the new USYD Business School on a residential street at easy walking distance to everything you need, including lectures, libraries, Sports & Aquatic centre, shops, cafes and public transport. We are also just around the corner from Carriageworks and the Eveleigh Farmers markets.
Close connections among all residents and on-site pastoral and practical care make ours a uniquely supportive environment. Everyone knows your name (and your birthday too!)
Ours is also one of the safest buildings on campus.
