Housing & Orientation

Housing:

Many students choose to live in University housing on campus in one of the residential colleges. College life saves the students the effort of cooking, cleaning and other household chores while trying to adjust to a new environment and making new friends. Each student is provided with their own room which is fully carpeted and furnished with a bed, bedspread, pillow, blankets, sheets, pillow cases, writing desk, chair, table lamp, book case, cup board, electric heater, power points, natural ventilation and light, and electric lighting. The rooms are cleaned and fresh bed linen is supplied weekly. Rooms come with either private or shared bathroom facilities.

Each college also has several common rooms where students can relax and spend time socializing with one another. The common rooms are variously equipped with television sets, video recorders, refrigerator, refreshment facilities, a table tennis table and a billiards table. Coin operated washing machines and dryers, irons and ironing boards are provided in each building. Alternative privately operated quality accommodation is available within walking distance of the campus.

For more information, visit:http:// www.usq.edu.au/accommodation

In addition to the residential colleges, participants have the option of living off-campus in USQ's Student Village. The Student Village is located within a 5 minute walk to campus and is across the road from a small shopping center. Each unit includes 3 or 4 single-study bedrooms with a study area, dining room, lounge and laundry. Units are fully furnished and equipped with a television set, heater, and lounge suite supplied with the latest kitchen appliances and utensils. All units are cleaned once a week and bed linens are provided.
