Newcastle, Commerce

Shalom offers so much! Opportunities to play sport; social and cultural activities to choose from; and really great academic support from tutors! The low ratio of residents to tutors is something you just don’t get everywhere. The residents’ society, RESSOC, is really active and they try to cater for everyone.

College Dates

Shalom College is open all year and residents are welcome to stay throughout the year. Each resident is contracted to reside at the college for a minimum of 40 weeks for the full year or 19 weeks for single semester students. These periods include O-week, teaching weeks, mid-semester breaks and the bulk of the exam period. (See below for 2017 semester dates.) 

Residents seeking to stay over the summer period will be charged a room-only rate (when the kitchen closes and no meals are available).
