Living at UNE

Flexible on-campus accommodation

Deciding where to live during your time at University is a big decision. UNE’s graduates consistently rate their time at a UNE residential college as ‘the experience of a lifetime’. The UNE residential experience is at the heart of your UNE study and together they make up a distinctly different qualification that prepares you for life, not just work.

There are some great reasons to live on campus when you study with UNE:

•             It’s cheaper to live on campus than it is to rent in town (when you consider all of the extra costs).

•             Live on campus and all of your utility bills are taken care of – that includes free, unlimited Wi-Fi and all of your heating.

•             Choose to look after your own food or opt for one of our catered options

•             Academic and social support are right there to help you reach your potential

•             Convenient location to the academic campus, sporting and social activities

•             ACER Research has demonstrated that students who chose to live on-campus perform better academically, adjust to University life better and are far more likely to complete their University studies successfully.

Choosing to live in one of UNE’s residential colleges not only saves you money, it puts you in the ideal position to enjoy the living and learning experience to the fullest. Both socially and academically, you are right at the heart of the action

 There are over 2000 places available throughout  nine residential communities. Each of the eight existing colleges has its own distinct character and traditions, or you have the chance to be one of the first students to shape the culture of our new residential college, Wright College, opening this year, providing a further choice in independent, self-catered living.

All students living in UNE accommodation for at least one trimester sign an Accommodation Residential Agreement. The Agreement outlines the conditions of acceptance of a place in a UNE residence, such as the admissions process, fee payment, withdrawal processes and any penalties that may apply.

 Students living on campus must also accept the UNE Residential Colleges Code of Conduct. For further information on anything to do with living on campus and how to apply visit:

Off Campus Living

College accommodation may not suit everyone. If you would prefer to live off-campus, Uni4Me can help you find shared accommodation, private board and local rentals in Armidale.

When considering off-campus living you should take into account the terms/duration of tenancy agreements including costs such as bond, wifi, furniture, power, water as well as transport arrangements and costs to and from campus.


 Smith House is conveniently located in the centre of Armidale and offers temporary and long term accommodation for students.

Each room contains a bed, desk, wardrobe and telephone. Rooms are cleaned once a week and there is also free internet access. Residents share cooking, laundry and bathroom facilities. Single rooms start at AUD110 per week and double rooms start at AUD180 per week.

More information can be found on their website at

Armidale offers various other off-campus accommodation options for students including fully catered lodging, boarding houses, share houses and private rental properties.

 In general, the availability of houses and units for rent in Armidale is good. However, if you are interested in rental accommodation you need to be aware that during the 4-6 weeks before trimester commences there is a much higher demand for housing and this may mean you will take longer time to find suitable accommodation. When deciding to rent a house or unit, you need to consider whether you will live on your own or with other people, and also the cost of setting up a house, which will include a bond (equal to 4 weeks rent), furniture, electricity connection, phone connection and other setup costs.
