Our on-campus accommodation is close to University buildings and facilities. With just a short walk to the library, cafes, study and social spaces, you'll have university life on your doorstep - helping you to make the most of your time here.
Most postgraduates who live on campus are located in Wentworth Graduate College and if you’re not, you’ll still be a member of whichever college you live in and housed with other postgraduates too.
Postgraduate accommodation is also available through our partner accommodation providers. These modern developments, Student Roost and Student Castle, are only a short distance from campus and offer contemporary, safe and comfortable accommodation.
All postgraduates, wherever you live, will also have access to the postgraduate only common room in Wentworth college.
In Shared accommodation, you'll have a wash basin in your room and share other bathroom facilities with your flat.
All shared bathrooms are individually lockable and cleaned Monday to Friday by our cleaning team. Toilet roll is provided for you.
In Ensuite accommodation, you'll have your own toilet, wash basin and shower in your room.
You’ll be responsible for keeping your ensuite clean, but our cleaners will perform a deep clean, usually once a term. Toilet roll is not included, so you'll need to buy your own.
