A short five minute walk from The Village is Central Market where students can buy fresh and healthy market produce, including fruit, vegetables, meat and seafood.

Located next to Central Market is Chinatown where residents can access an abundance of food options, mostly of Asian persuasion, from a variety of food courts, specialist supermarkets and affordable restaurants.

Behind Chinatown, and just minutes from The Village, is the Gouger street café precinct where residents can enjoy hot balmy summer nights and cosy winter evenings in the company of good friends and housemates, over coffee or a pot of tea.

Study resources

While classmates spend extended hours on campus to access the study resources they can’t replicate in other accommodation environments, Village residents benefit from the convenience of being able to return to the comfort of their accommodation environment to complete assignments and prepare for exams.

The Village offers residents access to free and unlimited WI-FI in all areas of the facility, a fully equipped computer room with connection from all bedrooms to a wireless printer located in the computer room which is supplied with both MAC and standard PC’s.
