We are delighted that you are considering living at Tommy whilst studying at university.
Your first year at Uni can be pretty daunting. New faces, new ways of working, and the looming deadline of an important assignment are just a few of the things you can look forward to. So, at Tommy More, we take care of the day-to-day things so you can concentrate on your studies and enjoy your social and sporting life.
You’ll have your own fully furnished room – with internet access – and we’ll take care of mundane things like cleaning. You won’t have to cook as the College provides three delicious meals a day for those in the standard rooms, as well as lots of spacious indoor and outdoor recreation areas.
Resident Advisors take responsibility for the wellbeing of students in their wings and they are very approachable. Many of our students tell us the College is just like one big family. Our staff are always there to help you whenever you need support or advice – and they’ll go out of their way to make you feel welcome. You’ll also find a great support network in your fellow students.
We look forward to receiving your application and helping you settle into university life.
With kind regards
Within the first few weeks of staying at College it became clear to me this wasn’t just a communal living space – I was part of one, big Tommy family. Life at Tommy has been the perfect transition from attending a regional high school to university in Perth.
