About the organisation
Burgmann College is a unique university residential community with an egalitarian approach to its structure and a non-hierarchical ethos. Opened in 1971, Burgmann is affiliated with The Australian National University and is situated on its campus. With its 50th anniversary coming up in 2021, the College continues to re-examine the vision and values of its founders—of creating an independent, egalitarian and inclusive home for students of what is now a world top-ranked university —and to shine the light on how Burgmann will continue to be a trailblazer and beacon for supporting young people.
