Purpose-built as a university residential college, everything about Salmond’s living space works. This medium-sized community, 260 residents in individual rooms all under the one roof, is spoilt with generous facilities and a huge sense of space. The dining room caters for everyone in one sitting, the common room is expansive and there are break out areas around the college to be enjoyed. The flow from the common room and dining room contribute to a special indoor-outdoor flow enjoyed by very few residential colleges. Tutorial rooms are modern and roomy. The chapel is a focus for the special character of the college. An ensuited residential wing offers mature students the opportunity to also apply for Salmond College.

Salmond is a supportive “family” community where everyone is encouraged to get along, and care for one another. The College is full of happy everyday students from all over New Zealand and the world and it is joy to watch this diverse community grow closer as a year unfolds. Salmond is an inclusive and supportive community. The family concept is fully encouraged: residents do things together, treat each other with respect as young adults adults, and look after each other really well.
