New Residents

Sancta Sophia College offers a complete academic, residential experience for students studying throughout Sydney. Our inclusive, respectful community offers a safe, welcoming home.

Sancta is a complete home away from home, where your focus can be on achieving academically and enjoying the best of living in Sydney, whilst being supported by our safe, welcoming community.

There’s much more to College life than just a place to sleep – academic and pastoral support, cultural, spiritual, social and sporting activities make for a total community experience. All meals are provided, so there’s no shopping, cooking or paying bills which leaves more time for students to immerse themselves in the many and varied opportunities on offer at the College that enhance the day to day university experience. Click here to start your application to join the Sancta community.


Sancta’s students come from all parts of Australia and overseas, we are a diverse and inclusive community, which intrinsically values respect and acceptance.

I would like to say thank you to the College for the wonderful memories and experiences the College has provided. Our daughter has matured into a beautiful, independent young woman. The College has extended her university education well beyond the lecture theatre, and I commend the Sancta for this.  The College is a safe environment that nurtures young peoples’ decision making and helps them make good choices.
