Living and Learning Community

ACU Student Accommodation, Camperdown is just one of a number of ACU run accommodations near the seven ACU campuses in Australia. Officially named Miguel Cordero Residence after Saint Miguel Febres Cordero of Ecuador and influenced by the values of the Catholic Church aims to provide support and guidance to all who reside within. The residence is not just a place to eat and sleep but a community – providing the true university experience to its residents.


While living at ACU Student Accommodation, Sydney you will never be short of things to do.

The team works on putting together a variety of on & offsite social & cultural activities for you to enjoy, throughout the calendar year. Activities like movie or trivia nights, soup, pancake or pizza nights, cultural themed gatherings & beach and city outings are just a small variety of the types of activities on offer.

The ACU Campus Ministry team have come on board to provide more spiritual focused activities and events. They assist the residence in running the occasional weekend mass throughout the year. 2015 has also seen the start of weekly Jam and Chill-out sessions. Students can come together and hang out, enjoy some of their favourite tunes and good company.

N.B. While all are welcome to participate in any of the activities run at the accommodation, residents are reminded that they are freely allowed to participate in as much or as little as they wish.


The residence also provides an academic support program for the residents. The program will be developed in consultation with academics and the campus Deans of both ACU's Strathfield and North Sydney campuses to reflect the demographics of the resident cohort. In addition to direct academic support we will also provide occasional interest based lectures and events that leverage the diverse contacts available to the University.

All of the residents will have access to Residential Advisers and visiting academic skills personnel that will assist in areas such as:

  • Study techniques
  • Exam techniques and dealing with exam pressure
  • Settling into Sydney and Australia for international and interstate students
  • Resume writing and presenting yourself for employment
