Our diverse residential community provides opportunities to develop your skills and forge lifelong friendships with people from all around the world. And with all costs included and the convenience of living so close to class, experiencing the distinctive world of on-campus living is more affordable than you think.


Experience all that Uni has to offer

Our residents are supported by a team of professional staff who work with the Residential Leadership Team to provide an integrated ResLife program that offers strong academic and social support and a wide variety of fun activities to cater for all tastes. Our student-focused facilities include study areas, common rooms and indoor and outdoor social spaces. Twenty-four hour security and on-call resident support provides peace of mind for those coming to live on campus, as well as for their loved ones at home. Living on campus is a perfect transition for students leaving home for the first time or who are arriving from other towns, cities or countries.

Each residence offers a choice of accommodation options, with the option of private or shared rooms and private or shared facilities to suit our student community. We also offer a variety of living arrangements to suit students seeking the ease of fully catered meal options or the flexibility of semi-catered living, through to self-catered options for students seeking more independence.

I lived in a share house for the first 3 months of uni, which was great and the people I lived with were really friendly. But, I soon found it wasn't quite the uni experience I had been looking for. I had some mates from Orange living on-campus, and eventually I was lucky enough to meet my current roommate, and he asked if I wanted to move in and the decision was made. It's been great living so close to the uni, close to the shops as well, and there's always something going on so I'm never bored.
