We have 9 different residences and various Living Environments for you to choose from to make your life on-campus the best it can be. Whether you want to live on your own or with others, cook for yourself or have your meals cooked for you, we’ve got a residence to suit you! And with 24/7 security, an award-winning ResLife program, classes and a range of on-campus facilities only a 5-minute walk away and accessible public transport into Newcastle’s CBD – you won’t want to live anywhere else!

Studying at our City campus? Don't worry, you can still live at Callaghan! We've got a free express shuttle bus that leaves from right outside the precinct to get you to and from class in the city.
