From your new home, you can walk to the centre of the University of Canberra campus in around five minutes, and spend the day studying for your assignments in the library. On weekends, walk five minutes to the closest bus stop, and cruise to the city centre within half an hour. There, you can spend the morning browsing vintage boutiques at Lonsdale Street Traders, or buying discount groceries at the ALDI supermarket.
Whether you choose a private apartment or a shared one, living so close to campus means being able to come home between classes. After an early morning lecture, stop in at on-site Oscar’s Bakery Café to pick up a healthy smoothie or a gourmet coffee, then freshen up with a shower in your apartment’s bathroom. After, get started on your assignments at the desk in your bedroom, using the optional high-speed internet. But if you’d rather study with friends, use one of the group spaces in the e-library.
At the end of the day, do your washing in the laundry facilities, before heading to the student lounge to unwind in front of the flatscreen TV or catch up with friends over a game of pool. Later, you’ll find everything you need to make something tasty for dinner in your apartment kitchen. Sit down to eat with your housemates, then get ready for a night out. Try The Lighthouse Waterfront Pub for beer garden vibes and live music, or Ha Ha Bar for cocktails overlooking the lake.
