West Residence, established in 2015 along with North, East and South, is the home of the West Wombats.
Known for their determination, reliability and friendliness, West is all about getting involved in the Student Living and broader community and supporting one another to be the best they can be.
West is also where you can find the Student Living team during the week and the After-Hours Duty Officers (AHDOs) when the day staff aren't about.
Like the other 3 towers, West Residence enables student living in a variety of configurations including self-catered studio, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 5/6 shared apartments.
Along with these options, West also provides residents with a multitude of social and study spaces including study rooms on each floor, a barbecue area and a ground floor common room featuring a ping pong table, large TV and AV equipment.
