In addition to our 8 Welfare Team Members, Selwyn is home to 180 permanent residents. Of these, roughly two thirds are first-year students and one third are students returning to the College for a second year. They come from all over New Zealand and the world and are enrolled in subjects across all of the academic disciplines with strong representation in Health Sciences and Law. Our residents are chosen on the basis of their academic merit, the contribution they have made to their schools and communities and their demonstrated leadership potential.
Selwyn College truly is a community of scholars and in addition to their formal studies, our residents participate in a broad range of cultural, sporting and social activities and are also involved in Community Outreach programmes and Learning Communities such as the Spirituality and Sustainability Learning Communities.
