UOW Accommodation Guarantee

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 the University of Wollongong. UOW is proud to be one of the few Australian universities to offer an accommodation guarantee.

To be eligible for the guarantee you must apply online by the deadline provided when applications for 2020 are available (see additional conditions). However, we recommend you apply 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 your 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 2020, please follow these steps and keep in mind:

  • Applications must be made online
  • You will need to pay a non-refundable application fee when you apply. We can't process your application unless this is included.
  • Make sure you review the Accommodation Guarantee conditions.
  • Apply early! Although places are available for 2020, these will go quickly due to the high demand for University accommodation.
