The College has a School of Theology, established in 1877 largely as a result of the efforts of the Right Reverend James Moorhouse, second Bishop of Melboume. T he only additional recurring charge for all residents is for membership of the College Clubs ($24, payable in three equal installments). Janet Clarke Hall provides residence, supplementary education and corporate life for members of the University.

Non-resident students are also accepted, and are encouraged to become active members of the College. With the acceptance of this generous offer the name of the College was associated; and the first Council of the College was appointed, by the addition to the original committee of eight representatives of subscribers. John's College, Cambridge, was appointed Master of the College—which was formally opened by His Excellency the Governor on 18 March 1881.

Ormond had made "the excellent and generous offer to defray the whole cost of building the College." From the beginning a policy of membership in the College of no conditions other than those of good character and adequate scholarship was adopted.

Resident grants are paid in three equal installments less the fees for the first, second and third installments. The rooms are allocated to the resident students in order of seniority, always subject to approval by the Master.

Rooms are furnished with essential furniture, but students must bring their own sheets, pillowcases and towels (four of each 40 T h e College Council reserves the right to review the matter at the end of each term. A holiday fee of the rate of $6 per day will be made for the period of stay outside that covered by the terms of the College.

Where, as in the clinical years of the Medical course, the period of hospital stay may include an absence during the College period, an allowance of $21 per week will be made for such period. A notice of deadline is required for the student's intention to leave the College during the course of the year, unless there are exceptional circumstances. The college has a certain amount of money available to award scholarships to students who could not enter or stay in residence without financial aid.

Where possible, arrangements will be made for students to live in College during holidays if they have to follow recognized courses of study. Entrance Scholarships are awarded annually on the basis of High School Certificate results, school reports and an interview at the College.

A number of scholarships are awarded annually, provided that there are candidates with sufficient merit; the value of a scholarship can be increased to allow a scientist to reside there, something he might not otherwise be able to do. Any student already attending the university and wishing to be elected for a university scholarship is requested to contact the principal. For more information on residency and tutorials, or scholarships, an application should be made to the Director, University Women's College, Parkville, Victoria, 3052.



Annual Residence Fee $1150 The above fees cover the College's residence fees during all three Colleges. For authorized stay at other times during the academic year, $4 per clay is charged. Full notification of the student's intention to move out of residence is required throughout the year.

Resident scholarships are available to candidates of any denomination, and will be awarded on the results of examinations. Scholarships are also available to students already attending university and will be awarded on the basis of the results of their university examinations. Candidates for these scholarships must submit an application to the Rector by 31 January at the latest.


A scholarship is awarded for one year, but may be renewed annually if the scholar's university record warrants.





Kendall Hall is named after the founder of the Melbourne Veterinary School, which opened in 1888 and was the forerunner of Australia's first veterinary school. It was officially opened with the rest of the clinical center in November 1967 by the Premier of Victoria, Sir Henry Bolte. The hall is the property of the University and is managed by the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.

It is primarily intended as a residence for students in the fourth and fifth years of Veterinary Medicine, who are required by regulation to be in residence during academic term. Provided that accommodation is available, postgraduate students and students in other faculties may also be eligible to become residents. Kendall Hall is also available for residential schools, short courses and conferences during the academic holidays.

Accommodation is available for both men and women and lecture halls and practical laboratories are located nearby. The Faculty Committee is responsible for the general management of the Hall; the day-to-day management of affairs is delegated to an elected committee of resident students. T he Hall is available as a student residence from the start of the first term until the end of the fourth term.

Intended residents must agree to remain in residence for a full year at a time, and term notice of a student's intent to leave is required. Recreational facilities are available and controlled by the student committee, which charges a nominal fee for their use and for other facilities.
