Peninsula Residential Village

The Residential Village contains an exciting group of smaller residences.  We have five accommodation options, all within a short walk to the heart of the University.  Each residence is a little different, both in terms of the number of people you'll be living with, and it's individual style.

Student Village

peninsula residential rooms

These are the largest of the residences on campus - you'll live with seven other people, but with your own private bedroom and access to two shared bathrooms.

It's a really social atmosphere, with three communal lounge areas, a veranda and grassed area to catch up with friends.

Lardner Road

An extended part of the Student Village, these two houses have either three or six bedrooms. These residences are a little bit smaller, but provide a great social atmosphere.

This house has three bathrooms, and a front garden filled with herbs and fruit trees.  The three bedroom house is ideal for students preferring more independence, yet still allowing them to be close to where the action is.

Bloom Street

Bloom Street

Bloom Street residences are a nice in-between option, with four people per residence. You'll have your own bedroom, and then share the other facilities with your housemates. Most residents here are undergrads.

Holmes Street

You'll share with two other people at the Holmes Street residence. It has an undercover carport and there's a great entertainment area in the huge garden. It's generally preferred by later-year students looking for a little more independence.

Samada Street

At Samada Street you have an option to either live by yourself or with one other person (of the same gender, unless both residents agree). It's a quieter pace here, with two external community areas and vegetable gardens.
