Living on campus is a fun and exciting way to experience university life. There is always something happening with plenty of social and cultural activities to keep you entertained. You’ll enjoy fun orientation activities, block functions, concerts, valedictory balls, international food nights and themed events, just to name a few.

The first stage of our purpose-built residence will be home to 300 students with plans to expand its capacity to 1000 students in the future.

The seven-storey octagonal building offers a variety of apartment-style living options including studio apartments, six bedroomed ensuite rooms or six bedroomed standard rooms with shared bathroom facilities. All apartments are self-catering and are equipped with modern cooking facilities including cooktop, oven, microwave, and refrigerator. Each individual bedroom is lockable and includes air conditioning and Wi-Fi.

The 42m long internal grass courtyard features shared BBQ facilities and is the perfect place to relax and hang out with friends.

The facility will be fully managed by an Onsite Manager and administrative support team, with Residential Assistants providing pastoral care to students.
