New College Access Accommodation Scholarship

June 19, 2015
Posted by: Jonathan Billingham, 11:50AM

The Access Accommodation Scholarship is to assist incoming residents to be able to live at New College. Meet the 2015 recipient, New Collegian Matthew Palmer

"I came from a small coastal town to live at New College in 2014. I’m in my 2nd year studying a Bachelor of Computer Science."

"Without the support of the New College Access Accommodation Scholarship, I probably wouldn’t be able to go to UNSW, and I definitely wouldn’t be able to focus on my studies and software projects to the same extent. I’ve been able to create apps, release open-source software libraries, and work with my friends on different side projects."

"Living at New College has been the most fun 18-month period of my life so far. Before moving into college, I would never have imagined the gamut of experiences I’ve been able to have here. I’ve played basketball, netball, touch football, and rugby for the college, and I’m on the tutoring team with responsibilities for First Year Computing, and Discrete Mathematics."
