Temporary Accommodation

When moving, it’s important that you find the right accommodation for you – ensuring that you inspect a property, meet your housemates and feel comfortable is important to making sure you have a good experience. We would also suggest viewing a range of properties to see where you feel most comfortable. 

This means that you may need to find some short-term accommodation, so you can take your time finding the right long-term home for you.  


In 2023, UOW has secured additional temporary shared accommodation at the Wollongong Surf Leisure Resort (WSLR). UOW will manage student placements to maximise places and find the best combination of students in each unit possible. Students who take up this temporary accommodation (up to seven weeks) will need to agree to WSLR terms, which will be provided with your offer.

UOW Support services

UOW has a community of people who are here to help students succeed, no matter where they live.
UOW students in non-UOW accommodation have full access to all UOW support services, including counselling, financial assistance, Student Support Advisers and more.
