2018 Open Day Testimonial:

My daughter and I travelled from Sydney for the day and managed to visit all the colleges along Daley Road.   The students in the other colleges were very kind and polite and showed us through their various halls pointing out particular services and amenities along the way. Our tours were brief, but we were able to gauge an impression of what life would be like along the way.

Johns was a very different story.  When we arrived at the College, we were greeted by a sea of smiling, energetic, optimistic and confident faces.   We were approached and warmly welcomed before we had a chance to ask for help which made us feel instantly at home.   There was a feeling of great spirit and camaraderie amongst the students which was infectious and I felt said a great deal about the residents as well as the staff. – Felicity Manchee, Moore NSW

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.
