Housing

  • Apartment

Apartment

Choose a single room, either within a five-bedroom apartment (with full kitchen facilities) or a studio apartment with an en-suite bathroom and your own refrigerator. Studios are all grouped together in the same hallway and share a large commercial kitchen in the basement of the building.

Here, you'll have plenty of opportunities to meet other students. The apartments and studios are contained within the grounds of “The Village”—a tight-knit student community, housing primarily international students. Please note that five-bedroom apartments are typically mixed gender. Meals are not included, and an extra fee applies for the studio apartments. 

The apartments are well-connected to Sydney’s safe, clean, and frequent public transport network, and only a short walk to University facilities. This option provides you the opportunity to live right by the vibrant and youthful Newtown district, known for its bustling restaurant and café culture, shopping, and nightlife.
