Tug o War

Aquinas offers an unbeatable balance of study, community and fun. You can take advantage of our elite academic support, but also chill out in our indoor basketball court/gym  or any of the other luxurious common spaces. Our exciting, competitive and inclusive social/sports calendar will ensure every resident has a balanced lifestyle and a memorable year.

The AQ Spirit

Our community spirit is what makes us different from other Colleges.  Everyone is someone at Aquinas.  From our friendly and supportive staff to the wonderful bunch of residents we have every year, this is a place you can truly call home.  There's something for everyone; lots of sports, cultural and community events to complement your studies.

Academic Success

Our academic results indicate that those who stay at Aquinas will improve their academic performance, regardless of whether you're a high achiever or not.  Our state-of-the-art facilities and strong academic programmes will ensure you have everything you need for academic success.


Brian Galvin, our Head Chef, recently received the distinguished award of University of Otago Chef of the Year 2014 and third place in both 2015 and 2017.  Not only does he ensure we are the best fed College in Dunedin, but his team are extremely approachable - giving you a sense of home when you sit down to dine. 

Don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that is AQ.
