Around 5,000 students live on campus in catered or self-catered residential halls and lodges; a much greater proportion than at any other Australian university.

Both live-in and day students take full advantage of our cafes and bistros for socialising, sport and recreational facilities for healthy timeout, and of course our state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities.
