Accommodation and Housing
There are many housing and accommodation options for you while studying at UNSW. Here you can find information about accommodation both on and off campus.
On campus accommodation
There are many benefits to living on campus including value for money, easy access to campus facilities and support within a fun and friendly environment. A variety of room types and apartments are available including catered colleges, self-catered university apartments or privately run colleges on (or very close) to campus. University accommodation should be prearranged as places are limited. For more information on the full range of on campus accommodation options see UNSW Student Accommodation.
