We have always known that living on-campus is a popular choice for our students, however, for 2022 applications have been received in record numbers. If you have not applied as yet, but are still keen to live in a student residence, you can apply to be placed on a waitlist for a room. We apologise for this inconvenience, but our rooms are in high demand with students keen to return to campus.APPLY FOR WAITLIST

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.

If you receive a UOW Early Admission offer for 2022 and completed your final studies (HSC, IB or equivalent) at a high school in rural or regional Australia, you will automatically be considered for a $5,000 rent discount for your first year in a UOW residence. There is no separate application to complete. As long as you meet these criteria and apply for your UOW accommodation by 14 November 2020, you are eligible to be considered for one of 24 scholarships. It's as easy as that.LEARN MORE
