Prospective Students

Which village is for you?

Students in residence

One of the most popular queries we have from prospective students and indeed parents is which village suits best. All student villages on campus are within 10 minutes' walk to the main lecture theatres, student services, restaurants and retail outlets. Our off campus villages, Troy & Groody student villages, are approximately 15-20 minutes walk to the main campus. Below is a summary of each residence and information about their location. You can also view the location of each village here on a map.
