First-Class Facilities

Our modern facilities are some of the best in the country. We have a fantastic Recreation Centre that is available 24/7 for all residents with a pool table, table tennis and Foxtel with a nice area just to chill out and catch up with your mates. The student tuckshop known as “the tucky” is also available in this space on specific nights.

We have a Graduate Lounge on the mezzanine level of the dining room that allows our senior students and graduates a place of their own. With a large television with Foxtel, it is a popular place to watch the weekend’s football action with other senior students or to kick back with friends after a gruelling day of lectures.

Our modern facilities also include nine separate common spaces that have TV’s and comfy lounges. We also have dedicated study rooms and academic learning centres, a print room, two bike storage areas with loan bikes and kayaks that our residents can borrow to take over to the river, two new laundries, a wonderful dining room and alfresco area, a seminar room and a communal kitchen students can use to cook their own meals.
