Academic support does not come second to the active social life of Philip Baxter collegians. There are a great number of student support networks existing within Baxter College to assist students with the academic side of university study.

The college has seven Resident Fellows, consisting of Masters and PhD students at UNSW, available to help students.

Peer Support

Due to the large number of students in Baxter College many students are studying the same or similar courses allowing peer learning to take place. Peer learning is consolidated by Resident Fellows and Academic Tutors meeting and forming study groups with interested collegians.

I.T. Support

Much UNSW teaching now takes place on-line. Assistance with IT is available from the Computing Directors appointed by the House Committee and, of course, from other residents, many of whom are highly skilled in this area.

The internet connection in your room will allow you to communicate with your friends, tutors and lecturers, and give you free internal access to the teaching resources placed on-line by your lecturers. It also connects with the learning resources of other universities and all the materials available on the web.

Other Learning Facilities

The UNSW Library and the Learning Centre are both only a short walk (about 100 metres) from the College.
