See all residences

Hi, I'm Madi. I'm from the Central Coast and I study exercise science, and I live here on campus at Kooloobong Village. Come on, I'll show you inside.

Welcome to my crib!

So, this is one of the four-bed apartments. I live with three girls who are my roommates, and four-share apartments are a really great chance to make some new friends or move in with friends. They do come furnished, but you can add your own little touches to make it look nice and homey. Each of us has our own secure bedrooms and then the living space is all shared. So, this is one of the common kitchens we have here at Kooloobong. So, on top of the kitchens we already have in our apartments, that have a stovetop and a microwave, you can come down here and use the oven. There's also a stovetop down here, so it's really nice to come down and do some baking. We've also got some really nice study areas, so it's just generally a really nice place to hang out. So, Kooloobong is two minutes walk to the main lecture theatre on campus. We're right across the road from the beautiful Botanic Gardens and another two minute walk just down to the bus stop that takes you into the city and the beach. So, this is one of the common areas that we have here. This is the activities lounge. We also have an indoor and an outdoor cinema, the gamers' den, lots of outdoor spaces, music room, so there's so many different things to get involved with outside of study and be part of our community here at Kooloobong.
