Our students are our #1 priority, and from the beginning of 2020 our teams have gone above and beyond to ensure we are supporting students through a very challenging time. Here’s how we’re making our Villages safe, and why living on campus is helping our students thrive despite the pandemic.
Frequent CleaningEnhanced cleaning protocols are in place in all common and high contact spaces
Virtual EventsOnline events, activities and support are now part of our event programs at all Villages
Contactless Check InContact-less check-in protocols are in place to ensure your move-in day is COVID-Safe
Social DistancingUse of all of our common spaces is in line with Government restrictions. When these change we’re able to swiftly implement them to keep students safe
Isolation ProtocolsShould any resident need to self-isolate, our staff are on hand to support.
On-Campus LocationsOur Villages are all located on campus, meaning students can avoid public transport to and from campus
Hear from our students
Peter De Vera
*"The Village gave me a safe refuge during the pandemic and gave a me glimpse of hope that everything can be alright. The staff were considerate and helpful. I made good friends with my housemates – I’m fortunate to have great housemates"*
Saltanat Paritova, UNSW Village
*"I met really good people in my apartment who helped me with going through the lockdown period. Moreover, the village was having a lot of giveaways and online events that were fun and entertaining. I felt safe living on campus and having the security on site. I stayed because I made friends here. I really loved the DIY tutorials, that are very interesting and engaging."*
Alan Lau, Sydney University Village
*"There were small gatherings and I got to meet wonderful people living at the Village. I stayed connected with them by organising small trips once restrictions were lifted. The soup kitchens had brought many people closer and I really enjoyed this activity a lot."*
