Shalom College celebrates diversity and welcomes residents from multicultural backgrounds, faiths and affiliations.
With students from around the world and across Australia, including many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, you’ll make life-long friends with people you may never have met otherwise.
Our values of community, learning and giving have been inspired by the Jewish founders of the college and as such we celebrate Jewish traditions, as well as the diversity of our residents’ festivities.
Shalom College’s resident society, RESSOC, is a group of dedicated residents elected annually on behalf of the student body to promote the interests of residents and to co-ordinate activities and events.
The AEPi House was founded as a result of three Shalom College resident’s involvement with AEPi. The AEPi House welcomes Shalom College residents, Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) members and other members of the Jewish community to events and programs in the house. It contains a kosher kitchen, large living room and courtyard where AEPi hosts events for College residents and other university students.
Shalom offers scholarship opportunities for Indigenous and Jewish students.
The Shalom Gamarada Scholarship Program was established to close the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians through contributing to higher education and increasing the number of Indigenous professionals. It addresses the serious educational and socio-economic disadvantages which many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students face by providing support for students studying long-haul degrees to live in an academic, personal and inclusive community at Shalom College.
