John XXIII College is more than just a place to eat & sleep - it's a place where residents become a part of a vibrant social community and make friends for life. It's a place where students feel at home as a part of an academic community.

The College attracts students who are seeking a 'collegiate' or 'all round' university experience. John XXIII College offers students fully catered accommodation; a community oriented residential experience, while open to all faiths our community is based on Christian values and the Dominican charism. Academic support and well-being / pastoral care support are a central focus at the College, which is located with easy access to the University's teaching and research areas, and is close to other student residences.

Affiliated by statute with the Australian National University, John XXIII College has always enjoyed both an independence from and a healthy, collaborative partnership with the ANU.
