About this space
St Andrew's College is a residential college located within the University of Sydney. It is located five kilometres from Sydney CBD and within walking distance of Newtown, renowned for its award-winning coffees, historic pubs and boutique shops.
As its name suggests, original literature lines the walls of the Reading Room, and a fireplace and portraiture add to its traditional ambiance. Its sunny position and decor make it a comfortable space for a variety of functions such as buffet meals, formal dining and conference lectures.
