Staying at Warrnambool

Our apartments and units are available to the public throughout the year. The nearby Hopkins river, surf beaches and our sporting facilities all make Warrnambool Campus a great place to bring families, school groups or staff.

Great availability during the summer

While we take guests all year round, the best time to book is during the winter months. 

This means we can accommodate larger groups who are visiting Warrnambool for things like whale watching or the camps we run in partnership with the YMCA.

Our accommodation

Warrnambool Campus has self-contained units with shared bathroom, kitchen, dining and lounge facilities for up to 190 guests available all year round. Each person is accommodated in their own furnished bedroom with heating and units range from four to 21 bedrooms. Easy-access rooms are available.

The range of units make it ideal for postgraduate students, staff members, school groups and people holidaying in the region. For further information please contact the Warrnambool office on 03 55633111 or

What's the difference between a hotel and a college/residence?

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!

Is linen provided, and do I need to clean?

All bedding and linen is provided, and cleaning's included in the cost of your booking.


Smoking's prohibited on all University grounds and inside any University buildings, including rooms. 

Residences and short-stay guests, however, have specific designated smoking areas that permit smoking for residents and short-stay guests only. 

Residents or short-stay guests found smoking outside of these areas may incur a fine and disciplinary action.
