St Thomas More College, Perth Residential College Whole College Photo 2019

Welcome to St Thomas More College at the University of Western Australia.

We are a Catholic residential college that welcomes students of all faiths and cultural backgrounds.

Our staff members, with the superb support of our residential advisors and student committee, are resolutely committed to bringing out the potential of our young men and women in all aspects of their growth as young adults and future leaders in our community. The intellectual, social, sporting and spiritual domains of the College afford our students many opportunities for development and for forging lifelong friendships. We see this as a ‘whole of College’ endeavour.

Our College, affectionately known as “Tommy More”, is now home to 400 students following a massive redevelopment. While our students are primarily studying at the University of Western Australia, students from each of Perth’s universities call Tommy More home. Imagine living in a community where you are surrounded by people who are passionate about their academic dreams, engaged in all aspects of university life and possessing the ambition to make a difference in their world. This is Tommy More!

I invite you to take a look around our website, as well as our Facebook and Instagram pages to get a feel for who we are and whether you might like to become a part of our community. If you are in Perth, please feel free to drop in for a chat and a tour of the College. You can contact the College via email or phone.
