Accommodation Scholarships and Bursaries

UOW is offering a number of scholarships and bursaries for students moving into one of our residences in 2018. Having help with your costs of accommodation means one less thing to worry about.


A range of scholarships for students living in accommodation are available, based on both equity and excellence:

  • 11 x General Residential Scholarships 
  • 4 x Living + Learning Partners Residential Equity Scholarships 
  • 2 x Living + Learning Partners Residential Scholarship for Excellence 

Scholarship applications open in July. Scholarship information will be made available on the UOW Scholarships page. 


In 2017 a number of bursaries were available for successful Early Admission students from regional areas or interstate, awarding $5,000 towards the costs of accommodation to make the transition to university easier. The application process for these bursaries has now closed. Find out about the Early Admission Accommodation Bursary >>

My Living and Learning Partners scholarship has made such a profound impact on my first year. I have extra time for studying and making the most of my degree, and I've been able to take full advantage of opportunities like the Australian Youth Climate Coalition. This scholarship has meant that I can immerse myself completely into university, in terms of both study and lifestyle.

Living on campus has been great because I can live on my own and have my independence, but it's close enough to my family that I can still visit. It was so helpful finding out that I had a guaranteed place in a campus residence, too; no stress about having to sort out somewhere to live!
