Even though session has started, if you are still looking for a safe, secure and supported living environment - most student residences have a small number of rooms available.
There are options to live on-campus, near the beach or in the city, in a single or shared apartment, either catered or not. We also offer residences specifically suited to mature-age and postgraduate students.
Many students say one of the best parts of their uni 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. When you live in a UOW student residence you will benefit from an environment committed to community and inclusion, safety and support. Making great memories starts here.
Each student residence provides a secure, supportive and safe place to live while studying. UOW residences welcome all students and offer the academic and wellbeing support you need to succeed and enjoy your uni years.
A small number of rooms are still available for 2021. Student accommodation is open to all UOW students, studying undergraduate, postgraduate or at UOW College, and offers academic and wellbeing support to help you succeed.

We're excited that 2021 will give more students the chance to safely study at the University of Wollongong's (UOW) vibrant campus.
Many students have missed the social experience of learning in person throughout 2020. And we have too.
So, in 2021, as much as possible, UOW students will be able to enrol in face-to-face learning, meaning they can make the most of the quality campus experience we're renowned for. It’s why our students have rated us as the top university in NSW and the ACT overall (QILT 2020) and have given their overall educational experience at UOW the maximum 5-star rating (GUG 2021).See for yourself
