*Home to one of the world’s best modern universities, Wollongong is the perfect place to be a student. A vibrant, multicultural city, situated on one of Australia’s most picturesque coastlines, it’s an easy place to study and live.
As Australia’s eleventh largest city, its nearly 300, 000 residents get the best of urban living and coastal relaxation just 80km from Sydney. Perfectly situated on the south coast of New South Wales at the foot of the Illawarra Escarpment, the city enjoys a pleasant climate, averaging 25°C in summer and 17°C in winter.
An adventurer and nature lovers dream, the Illawarra region has some of the most pristine beaches in Australia and a network of mountain walking trails that lead to waterfalls, wildlife and dazzling lookout points. Keeping healthy has rarely looked so good – with running tracks by the sea, bike trails through the mountains and clean Pacific waters to swim in.
The city center has a vibrant, youthful culture with a growing live music and arts scene, bustling nightlife and a wide range of cafes and restaurants to cater to every palate. Getting around is simple with a reliable transport network of trains, buses and taxis as well as dedicated bike paths. Multiple free shuttle buses also offer routes to and from each university campus and across the city.
For UOW students, the range, affordability and accessibility of student accommodation is second to none. Many students moving to Wollongong for study spend at least their first year in a UOW residence, where they thrive in supportive student communities.
