Janet Clarke Hall is a smaller college which offers real friendship and real community.

A leading academic college, offering a supportive and intellectually stimulating environment.

JCH students blend academic success, with a rich cultural, sporting and social life.

Who Are We?

Since 1886 Janet Clarke Hall has provided a close, supportive and academically stimulating environment for students coming from Melbourne, the country, interstate and overseas. Among the first institutions of its kind in the world

to accept women students into residence, the College has long stood for equality of access and opportunity, for women and for men, in a full and rewarding university education.

Jenny Tran and Richard Liu, two of our past tutors, have been recognised for Outstanding Achievement in innovation in volunteering, with their Community Health Advancement and Student Engagement (CHASE) program. The College would like to congratulate them on the award, as well as join in thanking them for their hard work and contribution to the wider community.

More information on the CHASE initiative can be found on their website, and a press release on the awards from the Minister for Health can be found here.
