The Real Difference In Campus Living Vs Student Accommodation

Posted at 12 November 2018 in Village Life

Sending your child off to University can be an emotional time for parents. And although they may live in a different postcode, city or even country (at least during term time), you never stop worrying about them.

However old or independent they are, your child’s safety and well-being is your number one priority. And it’s natural of course that you want to make sure they live in a safe place throughout their time at University.

At Campus Living Villages, we understand those concerns. That’s why we go the extra mile to make sure that can relax knowing that your child is safe with us.

So, what do we offer that your average student accommodation doesn’t?


Our campuses are well-lit, and we have hands-on security staff on site 24/7. Whether you’re looking for Student accommodation near The University of Sydney or accommodation near Murdoch University, Perth campus you can rest assured that the site is 100% safe, no matter what time of night our students get home.


We have Wi-Fi available across all our campuses 24/7. This means that you can reach your child on their devices!. So, no matter how useless your child is at paying their phone bill or topping up their credit, you can rest assured that in the event of an emergency, you can easily get in touch.

Settling In

We take pride in going the extra mile for our students. That’s why we provide more than just four walls and a bed. In Australia, our V1 – First Year Uni Program is dedicated to helping students make friends, feel at home and excel in their academic and social lives.

With ongoing Resident Assistant (RA) support, videos, blogs and private Facebook groups where they can meet their new housemates and neighbours before even setting foot on campus, we give our students the best possible start to their Uni life. After all, what is student accommodation without the fun and friendship?

On-Campus Accommodation

In some Universities, we have on-campus accommodation options. This is a particularly fantastic option for first-year students who are unfamiliar with the city or country.

Whether your child is studying a full-on subject with endless hours of lectures, a keen sports enthusiast eager to get involved with various teams, looking to keep the commute to a minimum or just wants to be right in the middle of all the action, they can live safely and securely on campus.
