Blue Gum House

A unique residential experience is the distinct advantage of Blue Gum House.

Located at our Central Coast Campus at Ourimbah, Blue Gum House is the smallest of our residences offering an independent living environment in a picturesque location. Its close knit community is home to 26 residents who live in unit-style residences offering modern surroundings in a quiet study environment.

Blue Gum House is a great place to live and learn and encourages residents to develop their own identity while inspiring personal growth and academic achievements. Resident parking is located adjacent to the house, and public transport (bus and train) is just a short walk away.

Nestled in the lush bushlands typical of the Central Coast Campus, residents have an impressive shared courtyard, extensive wheelchair access, laundry and barbecue facilities and common areas featuring pay TV, lounges and study areas.
