A key aspect of the balanced Carrington lifestyle is sport and recreation. There are a range of opportunities and facilities that you can use to get some fresh air, hang out with your friends, and stay healthy.
Sports at Carrington
The Carrington community enjoys getting out and competing against other colleges. Highlights for the year include the Intercollege Sports Day in orientation week, the Intercollege Sports Competition that runs throughout the academic year, and the Stuart Shield challenges against our sister College, Arana.
We also have a range of intracollege sporting competitions, including our famous Dodgeball tournament in Orientation Week.
Music at Carrington
Carrington is a very musical College and there are lots of opportunities to get involved in this aspect of our community. Whether it be performing in our musical soirees (acoustic lounge sessions held four times per year), singing with the Carringtones (our College’s choir), or practicing your instrument of choice in one of our common areas, we love our students contributing to the musical culture here. We are well-equipped for musicians with rooms available to hire for practice and three pianos located around the College.
Recreation at Carrington
In addition to providing high-quality facilities for study, Carrington prides itself on our recreational facilities and the opportunities that these spaces provide for our residents. These spaces enable students to relax and socialise.
