We think Knox truly is a special place. But don't just take our word for it.

Coming to Dunedin and staying at Knox was the best decision I could have made. The environment is welcoming and inclusive, and the loyalty that Knoxies have for each other and for the college is truly inspiring. The sense of unity and pride our residents have in our traditions and culture is central to the success of the college.


I have loved being surrounded by such a supportive, friendly (and extremely entertaining) group of students and staff here at Knox. I've been so lucky to make such an amazing group of friends, who have many similar interests and goals, but who have also got me to try new things and step outside my comfort zone.


I thrive off its traditions and the standard that is has upheld for over a century. I love that we are a family, and that once you are a Knoxie you are always a Knoxie. From your first minute within the walls you have joined a long line of prestigious students and senior executive that sets you up with contacts and friends for life


My main reason for returning is the balance between social and academic life here at Knox. The College has given me many tools to better myself socially, through events like the Hops, and academically, through tutorials. Living at Knox has been a great start to university.
