Student Accommodation Hobart - Our Fellows

Fellows of Jane Franklin Hall

Our Fellows are academics or professionals carefully selected as senior members of the Jane Franklin Hall community. Providing professional and academic leadership, as well as social, pastoral and financial contributions, Fellows act as mentors and provide support to our students.

Residents are encouraged to approach the College Fellows for study or career advice.

Jane's Fellows come from a variety of backgrounds: from arts to law, marketing to medicine, theology to science. Along with Council, Fellows are our community's most senior and distinguished members.
