A short walk from UTS and the University of Sydney, Scape Quay Street is your gateway to the highlights of Chinatown and Haymarket. Explore the area’s amazing culinary scene, from fresh roti and Malaysian curry at Mamak, to Chinatown Noodle’s handmade dumplings. Get tickets to a musical at the historic Capitol Theatre, or catch a pro basketball game at the Qantas Credit Union Arena. On Saturdays, get up early to trawl through the unique pieces of vintage clothing and artisan craft among the stalls in Glebe Market.
From Scape Quay Street, it’s an eight-minute walk to the UTS, or a 20-minute walk to the University of Sydney. If you’re running late, grab your bike from the storage racks and cycle to class instead, then use the nearby bus stops to get around on weekends. Shop for fresh seafood at Sydney Fish Markets or admire the beautiful harbour views from the Royal Botanic Gardens.
After a long day of classes, stop to chat to your friends in the ground floor lounge at Scape Quay Street, then step into your air-conditioned apartment and dump your books on your bedroom desk. Spend a moment catching up with your flatmates in the living room, then use the free Wi-Fi to research your assignments or get online at one of the iMac stations.
When you’re done, drop your clothes off at the laundry facilities, then head to the games room to relax in front of the TV or practice your pool skills whilst you wait for the cycle to finish. Later, fetch ingredients from the fridge in your apartment kitchen, before firing up the grills in the courtyard and cooking out under the stars with your friends.
If you feel like a night out, take a shower in your private ensuite, then use your full-length mirror to try on a new outfit. Sample The Wild Rover’s whisky-based cocktails or soak up the lively backpacker vibe in ScuBar, just down the block. With CCTV covered by your all-inclusive rent, you can get a good night’s sleep no matter what time you get home.
