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!

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

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.

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