Residential Fees

Residential fees cover full board including all meals, heating, electricity, provision of College tutorials and other academic programs, sport and cultural activities and some social events.

The following table shows the residential fee structure for 2018. The schedule applies to students residing at the College for the full academic year. Undergraduates are in residence for 36 weeks (two 18-week semesters including exam periods and term breaks). A separate schedule of fees applies to those students on a Study Abroad or Exchange program, or those who are seeking residence for one semester only.

Wherever possible, it is expected that students will remain in residence for the full year. If you are going on overseas exchange or completing your university studies mid-year, please contact the College for fee details.

There are three payment options available for full-year students:

  • Option A: a single payment of the full year’s fee of $29,545
  • Option B: pay in two instalments totalling $29,994
  • Option C: pay in six instalments totalling $30,594
