St. John Fisher College, known simply as John Fisher College, at the University of Tasmania was established in 1963 and built by the Catholic Church and its community. The college was named after 16th century scholar St John Fisher and provides accommodation for around 110 students. It is located in Upper Sandy Bay, Tasmania, Australia, on campus at the University of Tasmania.  
After fifty years of life, the college has completed an extensive renovation period, that has equipped it with state-of-the-art facilities, from the residents' rooms, to a new dining room, to I.T. facilities and bathrooms. This new lease on life has left Fisher a modern, and much desired place to stay for university students studying away from home.
The St John Fisher College Student Club provides representation for the members of the college. In March 2009 the Vice Chancellor officially opened "Pepperz" restaurant and cafe bar, the new catering system at the college.
College Spirit and Sport
College colours are royal blue and white, and the playing uniform for sports is the traditional striped rugby top with the 'Vatican V' logo. The 'hellfish' is a symbol held dear to the hearts of Fishermen and Fisherwomen. Whilst being the smallest of the three residential colleges in Hobart, St John Fisher College's presence can still be felt on the sporting fields. Sports played include Rugby, Australian Rules Football, Soccer, Netball, Softball, Cricket, Tennis, Basketball, Table Tennis, and Volleyball.
There are ~110 rooms at St. John Fisher College, all of which are equipped with a refrigerator, desk and desk lamp, ergonomic desk chair, pin board, white board, built in wardrobe, king single bed and heater.
