Apartments Landing

The UNSW Apartments are located either on-campus or off campus and are designed for independent living for undergraduates and postgraduates, including couples and families with children.

All of the independent living accommodation at UNSW is within easy reach of the city centre, Sydney's beautiful beaches and blue waters, Centennial Park, Sydney Airport, major shopping areas and bus routes.

University Terraces, Barker, Mulwarree and High St Apartments are all managed by UNSW Residential Communities.

Colleges Landing

Living on campus at UNSW provides more than just a place to live. It provides a home - as supportive, safe and secure as a true home should be.

More than this, it provides a community lifestyle that encourages the new friendships and experiences essential to a fulfilling university life.

University can be a daunting place, especially for first year students. By choosing to live on campus, you're getting access to a thriving community of peers and residents and you also get to tap into a huge network of talented and supportive advisors who are there to help you when you need it.
