Sancta offers a complete home away from home for female undergraduate students studying at any of Sydney's major universities

Empowering young women to realise their potential


Sancta Sophia College has been a home away from home for thousands of young women from regional Australia and metropolitan Sydney over the past 94 years. Each year, Sancta is home to over 200 undergraduate female students, and our community draws from all corners – cities, rural and regional areas of Australia, as well as countries from across the globe.


Live in a safe and supportive Community

Applications to live at Sancta in 2020 and 2021 are being accepted now from female undergraduate students. In response to the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on household economies, we have removed our application fee to enable future and current undergraduate students to begin their applications to live at Sancta with confidence.
