It is within walking distance of all the Campus facilities including a health clinic, food outlets, uni bar, YMCA gym and bank - and the local shopping centre is a short distance away. Situated in an attractive landscape close to picturesque Gardiners Creek, the residences are close to barbecues, walking paths, a running track and parklands. The Burwood Residences Building complements the existing 200 bed Student Village to create a new era of student housing comprising an overall 600 bed residential complex. The new building provides a range of brand new modern accommodation in a mixed gender and multi-cultural environment.

Living spaces

Students can choose from a fully appointed studio room including en-suite and fully equipped kitchenette, or shared accommodation featuring five or six bedrooms leading onto a large shared lounge, kitchen and dining area. Approximately 200 rooms are available for each option and either option features clean modern architecture and the highest quality finishes, heralding a significant commitment by the University to provide increased on-campus student accommodation at the Melbourne Burwood Campus.

Study spaces

There is a computer lab on the second floor and study rooms on each floor (for private or group study and academic sessions). Also, on each floor there are small lounges for residents to meet and socialise.

This common room flows seamlessly onto landscaped front and rear decks, with the front deck having BBQ facilities overlooking natural surrounds.
