Padua has a unique learning environment with a pervasive sense of community, connection and shared experience.

We are proud of the spirit and energy which connects us, both on campus and beyond through the broader Franciscan community, the Padua Foundation, our sporting networks, and of course our College House system and Padua Song.

The spirit of Padua flows from the founder of the Franciscan Order, St Francis of Assisi (1182-1226) which gives us a sense of purpose and energy in everything we do in the name of the College.
