Warrane College


Recommended Posts

UNSW, which was once regarded in Sydney as "not the University," is now a prestigious Group of Eight (Go8). Universities have become places of calm and diligent work, and Warrane has benefitted from this. Challenges and opportunities have come thick and fast during the first 40 years of Warrane's existence. These have included changes in funding for Universities and Colleges, globalization, the internet, and now Australia's Asian Century. Warrane has not only survived but thrived in this changing landscape. The percentage of residents who achieve a distinction or a credit average increases every year. Our former residents are having an impact in different environments of Australian and international public and family life.
Warrane College UNSW is an independent residential college for men affiliated with the University of New South Wales (UNSW). The name "Warrane" is derived from the name given to Sydney Cove by the original inhabitants. It is sometimes spelled as "Warring" on early European maps. Since 1970, Warrane has been a home away from home for thousands of young men studying at university. In the tradition of Oxbridge colleges, Warrane supports the pursuit of academic excellence and all-around development within a community of university students, teachers, and researchers.
Twenty-five residents, including two residential tutors, make up each residential unit of the College. Each student belongs to a small enough community to be personal yet large enough to offer cultural diversity and an extensive network of friendship and academic support.
Each year more than forty guests from academia, politics, the professions, business, and sport address them. This fosters the professional and personal aspirations of the residents through contact with people of high professional standing.
The College promotes a broad range of academic, cultural, social, spiritual, and sporting activities and community projects to give each resident an opportunity for personal growth. Warrane College is a project of the Education Development Association, a not-for-profit company, and a registered charity. The College's pastoral care has been entrusted to Opus Dei, an institution of the Catholic Church.
Warren strives to help residents build strong character. From promoting an atmosphere of mutual help and support among residents to providing opportunities to mix with top UNSW staff members and leaders from the wider community, Warrane is there to help residents excel at uni and in life. We believe solid values and professional attitudes promote healthy families and a strong society.
Warrane is about helping students become well-rounded individuals and men of character who make wise career decisions and have a strong awareness of the bigger picture, taking in the needs of family, friends, and society. In essence, Warrane seeks to equip students to live full and fulfilling lives. Warren seeks to provide a stimulating environment in which the intellectual, moral, and overall human development of the men who live there can flourish. Essentially, the College tries to provide a framework within which these ideas can be realized, and it utilizes the resources and services of men who share these aims.
