Application Process

Visit the College

The best way to know if we’re the right fit for you is to visit us for a tour. This is your chance to experience our facilities up close, sample our catering and speak with our team about what life in a residential college is really like. Alternatively, you can include a tour when you visit us for an interview, and can request this in the online application.

Complete an Online Application

Once you’ve decided that Mannix is the right place for you, the next step is to complete an online application. This is your chance to tell us about yourself. As part of this application you will be asked to submit a $50 non-refundable application fee, book your interview, and request a tour.

Attend an Interview

This is your chance to elaborate on what you’ve told us about yourself in your online application, and ask any questions you may have about life at Mannix. We are also interested in why you’d like to live in a residential community, and what you can bring to the College.
