Student residences are furnished rooms in shared or self-contained apartments in residential buildings. These residences are privately owned and run independently from the University.
In most cases you can rent a single bedroom and share the lounge room, kitchen and laundry facilities with other students. Some complexes offer en suite rooms and others have shared bathrooms. Some offer fully self-contained units. This accommodation is self-catering. Contact the property managers if you have any questions. Most properties will only accommodate students.
Below are some properties you might want to consider. They do not come with any specific recommendation or guarantee from the University:
