The Perfect Complement

Jane Franklin Hall is the perfect place to live while studying at university in Hobart. More than accommodation, Jane is a community where lifelong friendships are made and academic learning is valued. We aim to provide residents with the best possible experience and support in which to pursue their studies.

We have excellent pastoral care, academic assistance, IT facilities, staff living on site, and a secure safe environment. At Jane we go out of our way to help our students make the most of their time at university.

Jane also has an indefinable quality of spirit. Our students share a strong loyalty to the College and its rich sporting and academic tradition.
