Earle Page

Earle Page College is a non-denominational residential college housing 295 students. The college is well known for its attractive grounds and buildings, but we believe our greatest strength is the people who make up our community - the students and staff. Earle Page has a vibrant community of people actively engaged in sporting, cultural activities and community services.

We've been providing a home to UNE students for more than 50 years, with an active and enduring alumni community.

Our College members enjoy participating in a range of activities, which allow them to enjoy friendships and the growth that comes with engaging in a peer or team environment. We are a College known to be strong in the Arts, but we are home to students from all academic disciplines. 

Our residents enjoy the benefits of well organised academic and pastoral support offered by student leaders and staff. There are also several student committees that are uniquely 'Page', allowing the College to present a range of leadership opportunities to suit the varied interests of our members. 

We also offer our residents the benefit of strong community links through both our fundraising activities and events that engage the community with us.

I'm an Armidale boy... to the surprise of all my friends who were so eager to get out of town, I decided to go to UNE. I even moved across the road, to live at Earle Page College. It was the best decision of my life, and I would do it all again in a second...

I did lots of things at college (too many, my parents always said)... But if I was to choose one memory from my time at Earle Page College, it would be running 58km over one weekend as part of the annual Coast Run charity run from Armidale to Coffs Harbour. That year the Coast Run team raised more than $30 000 for the Children's Medical Research Institute. I guess not all college kids are lazy...

Whatever the future holds, I'm the man I am today thanks to UNE and Earle Page College.
