In addition to resident undergraduate and graduate students, Ormond offers a college-based program for a small number of non-resident undergraduate and graduate students.

Non-residents have the opportunity to become a member of the College community, enjoy a campus experience, benefit from personal learning in small tutorials, use College facilities and resources, and participate in a wide range of social and cultural activities.

Non-Resident Program

  • for undergraduate students new to Ormond, a five day residential experience before the start of first semester to enable students to become part of the diverse and vibrant Ormond community and to gain an understanding of College and University life
  • the same academic program that is offered to resident students, including small-group tutorials, breadth programs, Self & Society programs and academic visitor seminars
  • access to the College as a daytime ‘home’ on campus, including a locker for storing belongings
  • a study and work base including access to the Academic Centre

The program also includes opportunities to:

  • attend and participate in the College’s academic, breadth and other learning programs including lectures, seminars, visiting academic speakers and faculty based discussions

  • participate in the College’s co-curricular activities including drama, art, and music
