A unique tapestry of backgrounds, interests, and talents

Burgmann College is not just a place to live; it's a vibrant and dynamic community that thrives on the energy, diversity, and potential of each resident. It's a place where students forge lasting friendships, cultivate passions and grow as individuals.

The College is committed to creating an environment that is conducive to academic success, person growth and overall well-being. Everything Burgmann does is underpinned by the College’s values of respect, inclusivity, and egalitarianism. Residents are encouraged to achieve their highest potential both academically and personally, and to always have respect for themselves and others.

Our inclusive and supportive community consists of 378 undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as residential fellows, leadership and support staff.

There are ample sporting, arts, and social opportunities to get involved in and more importantly, residents have a significant say in the running of the College. Students will find endless opportunities to learn from one another and broaden their horizons. Our College believes university is not just about earning a degree; it's about students discovering who they are, what they're passionate about, and how they can contribute to the world.

Unlike any other College on the ANU Campus, Burgmann College is unique for having live-in residential staff. The Principal, Deputy Principal and College Dean all live on site, as well as Residential Fellows, enabling them to be available to assist and support residents throughout their university journey.

“As an international student who came to a foreign country, I knew nobody here and had no friends or family to rely on for support. It sounds almost incredulous to say but it took me less than a day of living at Burgmann to forge friendships that I am sure will endure for years to come. College events bring everyone together, and culture and socialisation are at an all time high on campus! It quickly becomes more than just a place of residence; it becomes a place you can happily call home.”
