Philip Baxter College

About Us

To be a part of The Kensington Colleges is to be a part of the rich history of UNSW. Made up of 3 individual collegiate communities, The Basser, Baxter and Goldstein Colleges provide not only a home at UNSW Australia for students, but a strong community for students to excel.  

The Kensington Colleges are best suited for rural, regional and international undergraduate students who may not have the ability to easily commute to University. There is a strong sense of community participation and this manifests itself in sport, social, leadership and charitable activities.

The Kensington Colleges are supported by a committed team of residential staff, managed by the Dean of College. Each floor has a live-in Resident Fellow, usually a post-graduate student or a senior undergraduate student in their final years of study.

The Kensington Colleges is a fantastic home-away-from-home for students who are embarking on their learning journey at UNSW Australia.
