Sancta Sophia College offers a complete home away from home for female undergraduate students studying at the University of Sydney, the University of Technology Sydney, or the University of Notre Dame Sydney.

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 98 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 2025 (full year) are being accepted now. Due to high demand for rooms at Sancta, we recommend that students apply as soon as possible. There is no application fee, and you can apply before receiving your university offer. 



Join Our next Virtual Dinner

Residents of Sancta invite undergraduate women from across Australia who will be commencing or continuing their studies in 2025 to virtually dine with them from the comfort of your own home, whilst learning more about living on-campus and studying at the University of Sydney, the University of Notre Dame, or the University of Technology Sydney (UTS)
