Transport at your door

Location: Corner of Porter and Hindmarsh Avenue, North Wollongong (view on UOW campus map)

Located next to North Wollongong train station, I-House is only a couple of minutes’ walk from the main train line that can take you to Sydney and beyond or south to Nowra. Whether you want to travel for work, visit your family or just go on a weekend outing, you have many options at your fingertips. Located just down the street from I-House is the free shuttle bus that can take you directly to UOW. I-House is close enough to campus that you can enjoy the great outdoors by walking or riding a bike on your way to class.

The best thing about living in accommodation is the community. You meet such a wide variety of people and have the opportunity to expand your worldview by being able to learn about so many cultures.
