Our building and facilities are the newest and most modern of the colleges at the University of Sydney. A short walk to both the train station and bus stop Mandelbaum House is located a mere 3km from the CBD.
The neighbouring suburbs of Newtown, Redfern and Glebe are a hive of activity with bustling cafes, restaurants, shops as well as a weekend market. With easy access to public transport getting to the city centre and other Sydney locations such as Bondi Beach, Darling Harbour, Circular Quay (Opera House and Harbour Bridge), and Chinatown could not be easier.
We welcome casual visitors for short or long term stays during the University summer semester break.

All of our rooms are spacious, fully furnished (including basin/sink) and include linen.
Guests are welcome to make use of all that Mandelbaum House has to offer whether that be reading on our sunny roof top, playing a game of table tennis or relaxing in the games room, we are sure you will find Mandelbaum to be an affordable, convenient home-like stay while you enjoy all that Sydney has to offer.
