Our on-campus apartments and units aren't just for students – they're a great place to stay if you're visiting the area. 

We have groups, families and individuals stay with us throughout the year, and we're especially good at accommodating large groups for school trips or conferences.

Great availability over summer

While we take guests all year round, the best time to book is from November to February, as more rooms, apartments and units become available. 

This means we can accommodate larger groups who are looking for university-style accommodation for conferences, school or sporting groups.

Bookings are non-refundable after 72 hours prior to arrival day, based on an arrival time of 2pm.


While we're happy to provide accommodation to external guests when we can, we're first and foremost a home to our student residents. 

In addition to accommodation, we endeavour to provide students with academic, social and pastoral care and support. Also, no room service or wake up calls, sorry!
