UON Student Living

Living On-Campus

A home for students from across Australia and around the globe

Student Living is the University of Newcastle's on-campus accommodation precinct at our Callaghan and Ourimbah campuses, with a range of facilities and living environments to suit undergraduates, postgraduates, couples and students with special needs. Awarded the Asia Pacific Association for Student Housing award for Housing Operator of the Year in 2017 and Excellence in Student Experience in 2016, Student Living provides an unparalleled accommodation experience that includes our exciting and unique ResLife program, 24 hour support and well-being services, customer-support initiatives and preferential living options.

Voted as one of Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Cities, Newcastle is a favourite for its relaxed coastal lifestyle, diverse nightlife, award-winning dining and arts culture. Newcastle boasts three coastal baths, a thriving small bar scene and a stack of local Australian designers. Smaller than Sydney, Newcastle is a favourite for those that move from the country in search of a city vibe that isn’t overwhelming. The people are friendly, the beaches are postcard perfect and the coffee culture is taken seriously. Lucky for our residents, all of this is just 20 minutes from Student Living.

Come and see our diverse residential community for yourself, with all costs included and the convenience of living so close to class, 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, including a Health and Well-Being Coordinator 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.
