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.
We’re serious about providing fresh, healthy food to fit with all dietary preferences. There is flexibility with dine in, take-away meals or late meals.
We attract bright students who are serious about their studies and balance of an active social life. Our staff work together to ensure our residents are happy, safe, & healthy.
Our community is a diverse mix of nationalities, genders and cultures. We respect, celebrate and enjoy all cultural and religious traditions.
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 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 only 40 weeks 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 are the only kosher college on campus and kosher facility within the surrounding area.
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.
