Q. Can I live here if I am under 18?
To be eligible to live at the village, we require that you are at least turning 18 by the end of first semester to stay with us. A 'Gaurantor Form' is required to be submitted prior to room confirmation.
Q. Do I have to pay extra for utilities?
The utility prices are included in the advertised room rates on our website. You are not required to pay an additional utility fee on top of the rental payment.
Q. Can I have people stay over?
Although we do not encourage overnight guests, we do understand that you may have someone stay from time to time. Please make sure that you sign your guest into reception upon arrival and sign them out on departure.
As per the village rules, you can have a guest stay no more than 2 consecutive nights in a 7 day period.
Q. How are roommates allocated? can I put in preferences?
Roommate allocations are conducted in accordance with any requests, such as: study preference, age, and gender. To make a request, you will be prompted to include these during the application process; however, if you would like to add a retrospective request please drop an email to us.
You will be advised of your room allocation upon moving into the village.
Please note that while we do endeavour to accommodate all roommate requests, we are sometimes unable to, and cannot guarantee or make any promises. We will do our best!
Q. Do I need to bring kitchen utilities, such as a kettle or toaster, with me?
The kitchens are already kitted out with basic amenities, such as the fridge and the stove. However, you will need to supply your own utilities such as a toaster, kettle, and sandwich press for example. If you live in shared accommodation, you can always wait until you meet your roommates to organise a group shop to figure out what everyone has brought along with them.
Q. Can I bring my pet?
The village has a no pet policy – this, unfortunately, also includes goldfish.
Q. Can I live at the village if I do not study at Sydney University?
The village accepts Sydney University students and university staff only.
Q. The contract dates don't suit me, can I negotiate?
All of our fixed term contract dates as advertised are non-negotiable. We do however have 6 month contracts available if you are looking for a shorter term contract.
