The John XXIII Community, led by the new Head of College, Mr Jason Lincoln (Jas), will welcome new residents on Sunday 7 February.

New residents will travel from across the country, many with their parents in tow. They will be greeted by staff in the area next to the John XXIII Chapel, as they check-in and receive their key. Senior Residents will then meet them and show them to their new home away from home, and they will enjoy lunch together before their parents meet with the Head of College and then head for home.

The following week will see a jam-packed program of events that will help new residents understand everything they need to know so they can live in harmony in a 300-person university residence, including respectful relationships, academic support, social events, and how the dining room works.

Our returning residents check-in on Sunday 14 February, in time for O-week, and academic classes begin for the year on Monday 22 February.

2021 is going to be a great year for the John XXIII College community! Stay tuned for more good news stories as the year progresses.
