Mary White College

Mary White College

Mary White College is a residential college at the University of New England (UNE), Australia, established in 1957.

The College was named after Mary White of Saumarez, a member of the Advisory Council of the then New England University College from its inception in 1938 until her death in 1948 [1]. Born in 1882, she was also noted as a photographer and woodcarver [2].

The college opened in March 1958, originally an all-girls college, though it has subsequently become co-educational. Blocks 1, 2 and 3 were fully completed by March 1959. A fourth block, with the Basement Common Room, was added in June, 1963 and a fifth block, with a new dining hall, was added in 1967. A further two blocks were built for the 1989 intake. Starting in 2010, renovations have been completed on blocks 1, 2 and 3, as well as the common areas and Basement Common Room. The college currently provides accommodations for about 200 residents, with the university's only female only, non-alcohol and mature age blocks.

Within the college system on the campus, Mary White College is the college situated closest to the University. This makes it the most popular with external students who attend residential schools, as they often do not have their own vehicles. People attending conferences and international delegates also are common at the college.

The college colours are green, white and black. The coat of arms, designed by Architect John Stephen Mansfield, has three white roses, a variation on the university's coat of arms, which has three red roses. The college's motto is "Ad Humanitatem", Latin for "Towards Human Understanding" or "For Humanity".

The college is involved in most extracurricular activities that UNE provides, including the Presidents Trophy UNE and Mary Bagnall Trophy Sports competitions and the Sir Frank Kitto Cultural Competition. The college also fields teams in club sports including hockey, netball, soccer and waterpolo.
