    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    I highly doubt either would change your chances, but for pure practicality i'd apply as early as you can. It's one less thing you need to worry about when it comes time to enrol and everything.

    Which campus were you thinking of?

    My experiences slide with weerona, but there are many CE fans around.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    No I haven't seen the various campuses, I a have only seen the Wollongong University campus once. Thanks for your advice though, it is muchly appreciated. Unfortunately I am unable to get to Wollongong to take a look at the campuses, so could someone please give me a quick summary of what each one is like.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    You should grab a mate and go on some kind of wild roadtrip during the spring semester o-week to get a feel of the colleges because as kaz said, they all feel fairly different.

    CE has stacks of people, you've got more space to yourself. Weerona is about a third the size, everyone seems a lot closer, cosier vibe. Haven't been to the others.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    just to let everyone know campus east has recently provided internet access for all rooms so its not a problem anymore for anyone
    also i believe self catered will be going up from $145 a week to $150 next year

    kind of annoying considering when i moved in last year i was only paying $130

    this is one of the reasons why im moving out at the end of session. i still love ce but after two years i think its time to move on and out

    Hmm they close before the 2006 UAIs are released? That's a bummer... not even sure if I'll even get into UoW and don't exactly have $40 I could spare to take the chance. Guess I'll wait for the July intakes, but any idea on how hard it would be to get a place then?

    It's easier to get a place during the July intake then the start of year, but I would recommend start of year, as at the start of the year there is a large number of new students - so you are all in the same boat together etc. Plus o-week at the start of the year is better then midyear
    Think I'll take the risk and apply anyway I guess, should add to motivation of trying to actually get the UAI for Wollongong anyway since I've got my application fee on the line ;p Or maybe I'll just wait and see how confident I'll be with my results once the exams are over.

    Thanks.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    i agree with wongy, you dont really want to miss oweek on campus because its then that you will meet your group of mates that youll keep for the rest of your campus life... it seems by the end of oweek people have already formed into their cliques

    did i say seems? i meant thats exactly the way it is
    youll enjoy east, 99% of people who start their do, especially if you are a sociable person

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    For anybody else who is interested, it turns out it largely depends on what Campus you want to stay at. For Campus East, there are no interviews.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    i thinks thats stupid having to pay an acceptance fee... i guess its the same as having to pay bond but the thing is if you break something you have to pay for it to be repaired, it doesnt come out of that fee

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    I've gotten an offer from UOW, and I applied accommodation in October 2007...Will the staffs release any information for me?

    A few months ago, I sent an e-mail to Mike Gillmore, the general manager of Accommodation of UOW, and he reply as below

    "Hi Kenny

    Offers for students applying to University through the UAC system will come out through Jan 2008 (as I am sure you are aware). So we can be sure we are offering accommodation places to students that have a UOW tuition offer we will make accommodation offers to UAC students at the same time.

    As long as you have your accommodation application on time, and you get a UOW tuition offer through the UAC offer rounds you will receive an accommodation offer.

    Regards

    Mike Gillmore"

    Ok, so I will receive any information of accommodation after few days of UAC main round offer. Huh.
