Accommodation Services

2015 places still available - Apply Now


Having an Accommodation Guarantee lifts a huge burden from the shoulders of students (and parents) who are looking for somewhere to live for their first year of study at UOW. UOW is proud to be one of few Australian universities to offer an accommodation guarantee*.  

To be eligible for the guarantee you must apply on line by 31 October 2015, (please see additional conditions), however we recommend that you apply online as early as possible as you’ll be more likely to get your room preference. 

UOW Living has a range of living options—catered, self-catered, single rooms, twin share, units and studios—and all are either on campus or a short distance from UOW. It’s important to note that while you can nominate four room preferences, we cannot guarantee any specific preference. Some residences fill faster than others and it’s important to think carefully about what type of residence would suit your needs. We suggest you nominate at least three different residences. This maximises your chances of getting a ‘best fit’. 

To apply for UOW Living in 2016, please follow these steps and keep in mind - 

  • Applications must be made online
  • You will need to submit a non-refundable application fee when you apply. We can't process your application unless this is included
  • Don't delay! There are currently places available for 2016, however these will go quickly due to the high demand for University accommodation
  • Make sure you review the Accommodation Guarantee conditions.
