Mandelbaum House policies

University of Sydney policies

Please note: Mandelbaum House is on University of Sydney land, so the smoke-free policy applies to our building.

Smoking and vaping are not permitted within or on the balcony areas, roof terrace or within 10 metres of the college.

A welcoming and warm place immersed in cultural diversity,
great memories and friends for life!

Audrey, New Caledonia

It is wonderful to have a spacious and fully furnished bedroom
to which I can retreat to after a busy day of classes!

Julio, Colombia

I love that I always have a healthy option
at every meal that is also delicious!

Rebecca, USA

When you go to uni with 60,000 people,
it’s nice to come back to a family of 40 at the end of the day.

Michael, Australia

Mandelbaum House has been the most diverse,
welcoming, active society I have ever been involved in.
