Academic

Our residents have proven that they achieve higher pass rates than other students. We believe this is partly due to our academic support program which is available to all residents.

Social

Our community is inclusive and welcoming which really helps to complement our residents’ success during their time living in student accommodation. We encourage opportunities for students to be ‘life-ready’ and to gain skills that will assist them beyond their time in residence.

Cultural and community

We continually look for opportunities to help our residents become immersed in their community. Community engagement and cultural awareness are key elements to producing graduates that are in tune with the world around them.

Health and wellbeing

There is a strong link between good overall health and cognitive function so we believe keeping our students active and engaged with their wellbeing is important to their success with their studies.

Spiritual

Having an awareness of your personal spiritual belief system can help you be a well-rounded resident. We encourage all our residents to express their spiritual beliefs by creating a respectful and engaged environment.
