Graduate House

Sancta Sophia College’s Graduate House is a well-established and diverse community of both domestic and international postgraduate and honours students, academics and medical professionals.


Graduate House is Sancta’s gender-inclusive postgraduate residence.

Opened in 2014 and located on-campus at The University of Sydney, we offer purpose-built facilities, ample natural light and 128 modern ensuite rooms, ensuring the ideal environment for academic success. Each room has a microwave and mini fridge, whilst the common areas have full kitchens. Outdoor living comprises a rooftop terrace and BBQ lounge area. Every resident has their meals fully catered for by our in-house chefs. 



There is no mould for fitting in at Sancta – our diversity of age, gender, culture and academic discipline means residents feel welcome from the day they arrive. The College values respect and support for all. A third of residents join us from countries such as Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand, USA, China and India. Graduate House residents study at University of Sydney, University of Technology, University of NSW and Notre Dame, with the top five faculties being Medicine, Law, Dentistry, Engineering & IT and Business.

Professionals in Residence

Sancta’s Professionals-in-Residence program is a key initiative of Sancta’s long-term aim – to be a hub for the world’s brightest scholars and professionals to live and learn together. Professionals-in-Residence brings professionals in their early years of practice or research into our community of university scholars. This builds upon our culture of knowledge-sharing and peer support, whilst adding a deeper layer of experience to the community. Each year, up to 20 working professionals will call Sancta’s Graduate House “home”.
