Living on campus has made my first two years of university very enjoyable and allowed me to acclimatise to city living. The residential team has helped me live in comfort, make life-long friends, and enjoy my first two 'solo' years in Melbourne.

Which is the right room for me?

This is purely a personal decision. As a general rule, shared accommodation options are more social. You use the same kitchen, lounge and dining area as the other students in your unit, which ensures you'll interact with your peers.
Self-contained apartments allow you to cook in your own kitchenette and watch TV in seclusion. But there are also communal kitchens and breakout areas in the main buildings so you can study and relax with your fellow residents.

Shared spaces, shared lifestyle

Living on campus at Melbourne Burwood means you’ll have lots of places to study, enjoy a break, or catch up with friends. Some of the shared spaces include:

  • large common rooms with fully equipped kitchen, seating area, pool tables and table tennis
  • movie room
  • outdoor BBQ areas and a rooftop terrace
  • an outdoor atrium
  • landscaped gardens
  • study rooms
  • multipurpose recreational rooms.

Our Campus Life team and Residential Leaders run a variety of small and large events where you can meet people, get to know Melbourne and its surrounds, be supported in your study, have fun and make lifelong friends. With weekly events on and off campus, we encourage all residents to join in and also let us know if you have a great idea for an event!
