UWA Guaranteed Accommodation

UWA now offers guaranteed accommodation to all new full-time students.

A guaranteed home for new students

Organise your accommodation now so you can focus on planning your studies and enjoying the time before uni starts.

Take a look at our five residential colleges, each of which offers a unique campus living experience. Our Guaranteed Accommodation Offer means you can pick any of these options or choose UWA-owned off-campus housing (Crawley Village) or the student accommodation in Perth’s CBD that’s been endorsed by us. Either way, you’re guaranteed a bed. Just one thing – while we can guarantee your place, you'll still need to pay the usual accommodation fees and costs.

Our residential colleges

Trinity Residential College

Trinity Residential College provides a fully catered living-learning community for 350 students, set among lush gardens, which includes a second-to-none experience in academic support and pastoral care. 

University Hall

University Hall is UWA’s own residential college, providing more than 750 students with a vibrant community complete with events, programs, pastoral care and personal support.

Off-campus accommodation

Off-campus accommodation suits students who want a more independent style of living or the benefits of living in the Perth CBD. Postgraduate and mature-age students might prefer living in Crawley Village, an informal grouping of UWA-owned apartment-style housing in the streets neighbouring the University.

In 2019, two new student housing options opened in Perth’s CBD. We have endorsed both The Boulevard and Campus Perth as accommodation options for our students. Both offer shared and single occupancy rooms.
