John XXIII College is a vibrant & caring Catholic community in the Dominican tradition. We provide you with the ideal environment to begin & continue your tertiary studies: a balanced well rounded university experience, nurturing sport & creative talent, academic study and support and helping communities in need.

A fully catered residential college, John XXIII was established in 1967 on the site of Lennox House, at the Australian National University (ANU) prior to its construction at 51 Daley Road in 1969. The College was founded by the Order of Preachers (Dominicans) and was named after Pope John XXIII (1958-63). The four pillars of the Dominican Charism (community, spirituality, learning, service), underpin the life of the College.
