Come home to the welcoming space of the Village where apartments sit with lawn and trees in between. Cross the street to find yourself on the edge of the University campus where you can visit the Sport and Aquatic Centre or head to the library to study. Macquarie Centre, one of the best shopping centres in Australia, is a short walk away so shopping, eating and entertainment is easy. Leave time to explore the stunning bushland in nearby Lane Cove National Park - perfect for a weekend picnic.
Walk outside your door every morning and listen to birdsong as you walk to lectures at Macquarie University. At lunch, wander over to the Campus Hub and tour the Food Court, choosing from Mexican, Thai or a fresh salad to fuel your afternoon. Spend evenings on campus at a gig or watching a play. It’s an easy walk home after a night out with friends. The university train station is a short walk away, and from there you can be in the heart of Sydney in around half an hour if you want to get to know this beautiful city.
When you get home to Student Village Top Ryde, head to the student lounge, where you can put down your shopping bags and relax on the couches as you watch a little TV. Play a game of pool or table tennis with housemates, or catch up with your neighbours in the outdoor area for a barbecue. If you still have energy to burn, enjoy a game of volleyball on the grass courts.
There are plenty of options to choose from when you’re looking at apartments. Opt for an all-female apartment, spread out in a one bedroom apartment or share with friends in one of the larger homes. All have fresh finishes and bright, white kitchens with plenty of room to store all your groceries, ready for you to cook up a storm. Sit around the dining table and chat as you tuck into your dinner.
Study in your room, or if you fancy a change of scene head to one of the study spaces in the Village or the university library. Save time by using the on-site laundry facilities. Speak to the support team any time you’ve got a question and to find out what events and activities are coming up on the resident social schedule.
