Live on campus

Many students say one of the best parts of the university experience is living in a residence. Rarely will you have the chance to live in a community that has people from so many walks of life and countries. At UOW Student Residences you will benefit from an environment committed to providing high academic achievement, involvement, development and fun.

All residences feature student development and peer mentor programs, social, sporting and cultural events, and 24/7 student wellbeing care. Utilities, furniture, laundry and limited car parking are available at each residence.
