A modern, relaxed college with more emphasis on innovation than tradition…
Large and incredibly active, Collingwood boasts a vibrant community of students and staff and is one of the most laid back and informal of the University colleges. We currently have a broad mixture of over 1200 undergraduates and postgraduates from all over the world. Around 550 of those members live in the College grounds.
Our core philosophy reflects our motto: “Aime le Meilleur”, Love the Best. For us, this means enabling every member of our community to recognise and realise their maximum potential: academically and personally.
Community is the buzz word at Collingwood. Fundamentally we seek to develop a strong communal sense of duty and care in which ‘being the best’ is framed not solely in relation to one’s own personal achievements but also in the multiple ways that we enrich the lives of others.
Excelling in sports, academia and the arts, we offer something for everyone, and we always look forward to welcoming new members to our community.
