Conveniently located in the heart of the city, students experiencing Marketview Living are able to make the most of this central location while they study and take advantage of all that the city has to offer. Marketview is walking distance to great cafes and restaurants, shops, cultural events and the beach. Students also benefit from the support and community that UOW Living gives to all of its students.
Marketview is a self-catered residence for 144 students and appeals to 2nd year and older students in addition to postgraduate students who want to live in a vibrant city location and are happy to do their own cooking and cleaning, while being supported by University staff. Rooms are all fully furnished, and the property is owned by UOW and managed by University staff. The high level of support experienced by all students at UOW Living is available here. This includes security, wellbeing support, academic support and just settling in to the new environment and taking advantage of the wide range of events and activities.
UOW is only 10 minutes by transport and is easily accessible by the nearby free Gong Shuttle.
CULTURE AND STYLE OF MARKETVIEW
UOW Living gives students a chance to experience a diverse and supportive community. Marketview has 144 students from all over the world, studying a range of courses and degrees and benefiting from a dynamic and multicultural environment.
In what we believe is a world first, Marketview has collaborated with PASS@UOW (which also acts as the Australian National Centre for PASS) to introduce ResPASS. ResPASS is a fusion model which takes key elements of the multi-award winning PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) Program philosophy and brings it to a student residence environment. Students are supported by 7 Residential Peer Leaders (RPL’s). RPL’s are fellow students who can offer support and advice when you need it. They encourage residents to connect with other people from their Faculty so that they can study collaboratively and they run regular groups dedicated to understanding how to succeed as a student at UOW.
ResPASS will add to the vibrancy of Marketview and there will be a range of social, cultural, sporting and academic events on offer. As with all of the UOW managed residences, students have access to 24/7 support from trained student leaders and staff.
