    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    Hey guys, what's a good hall/college for somebody who's fairly extroverted, easy-going and likes alcohol? Preferably 200+ peops.

    For what it's worth, I lived on campus at ANU in 06/07, and we'll be studying BEd/BSc at UoW in 09.

    You can't go wrong with campus east for the alcohol and easy-goingness

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    I seem very interested in Campus East and I was wondering if the $150 per week (if my memory is correct) is that per person or per room of four or so people?

    Are you going to be at the Wollongong Campus or Loftus Steele?
    Cheers. Just what I needed guys.

    I don't know. Either way I'd be staying on campus at UOW main, right? Chris said something about Loftus being in Sydney?

    Edit: Oh, yeah, Campus East looks pretty sweet. Do you guys know how tight they are about noise, alcohol, parties, etc? The previous college I was at liked to pry into your social life a bit too much.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    Oh yeah I realised yesterday while flicking through the brochure thingo. Weird stuff. So there's little inter-hall mingling?

    Cheers for all the info! And yeah that's the one.

    I can't decide between chemistry, comp sci then Dip Ed, or choosing between comp sci and chem to combine with BEd. Leaning towards Dip Ed. Hmm might be able to fit them all into BEd/BSc.

    I can't vouch for inter-hall mingling but a few of my Canberra friends all started in different accomodation and are now good friends, so *shrug*. (Although a good majority of on-campus* types I know come from Campus East.)

    *I use on-campus to refer to anyone staying in University accomodation, as distinguished by private rentals and stay-at-home-bums.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    Put my application in for campus east a few weeks ago.
    Does anyone have any idea of roughly how many people apply and how many people get rejected??

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    Ive just put in a application for campus east too

    I read on the uow website somewhere that i can specify where abouts in campus east i want to live... (ill just send an email when i decide)

    But what would be the best? (in flex-catered)

    West Block
    Trench Town
    A/B, C & D Blocks

    The only difference i can see is that A/B, C & D blocks have a better common room?

    and west block and trench town have "shared bathrooms" whereas the A/B, C & D blocks have "shower and toliet rooms"... whats the difference here?

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    I'm pretty sure you wont get into trench town if you're a first year. At least, that was my understanding of it. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    first years are just as likely to get into trench town as anywhere else on campus.
    i know heaps of them in there in the last two sessions.

    Im in Hospital at the moment (that is, A&B block) and to tell give you some info on campus east...

    A&B - Hospital
    The common room has a table and a kitchenette, with a booth seat around the table.
    The bathroom is common. it has a seperate toilet and shower, with a common sink.
    The room is split between 5 people.
    common phone

    Hospital is kind of known as the party block, after slums lawn i guess. it gets pretty loud, but study isnt impossible.

    C block - Postgrad
    Similar to Hospital. phones in each room.
    5 people

    loud on some nights, quiet on most. though i dont go there too often cant vouch for it.

    D block - Alkatraz
    Heated rooms (though aldis is down the road and you can pick up a $7 heater for winter)
    5 people
    similar to postgrad and hospital. without the common table. though they do have a couch.

    pretty quiet this year. good place for study.

    Hospital, Postgrad and alkatraz have storage rooms.



    Slums (not sure which block they are)

    No common room. Common Bathroom (shower and toilet in one room)
    Rooms are a bit bigger from my knowledge, than hospital, alkatraz and postgrad.

    Slums lawn is a pretty lax area. youll find people sun bathing, or studying on there on the odd day. however mostly drinking will occur on here before parties.

    Trench Town
    Ive heard, those who go to trench town, stay in trench town. they seem to love it. however its not unheard of the area flooding and your room filling with bugs and spiders.
    theres rumour of it being torn down in the future.

    Slums and Trench town are 3 people rooms i think...

    Self Catered.
    Biggest rooms on campus.
    Large common room, kitchen, storage, couches, fold out couch, table, large fridge, tv.
    2 bathrooms.
    though this is no flexi catered.



    hope that answers some questions. if its been posted already than oh well... im procrastinating anyway.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    I put in an application back when i applied for early entry because my brothers friend was Campus Coordinator or somethign and heavily recommended doing so before november.. From what I heard from him Weerona was sweet as, and he loved it there so i put Weerona Single/Double as my top pref, then campus east.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    Does anyone know if it's possible to apply for this after the 20th of January, when I find out if I've got a main round offer? And would I most likely get accepted into somewhere?

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    It might be possible, but I believe that accomodation offers come out with main round offers (so if you get a main round offer to UOW and you've applied for accomodation you'd get your accomodation offer then too). I'd say if you wait until you get your offer it would be too late. I was hearing someone say that one of the residences already has roughly double the applicants than places for next year.
    I'd apply now if you have any desire to stay on campus/come to UOW next year.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    Can someone tell me whats the deal with parking at Campus East, or any of the other places?
    On the fee thing it says parking is $300?
    I thought that was for a parking permit for the main campus?

    When I was there, you can just park in Campus East without a permit. At least I always did.

    You need a permit for the uni though. However, I'm not sure if students can apply for a permit. I think they restricted that to staff only... unless rules have changed.

    Otherwise, you have to pay at the meter in uni or park on the surrounding streets. The streets fill up pretty quickly, so you need to get there early.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    I got conditional, and i've met my conditions, but i haven't been made an offer yet. Oh well, how many people actually get rejected? (apart from those who weren't made an offer to the uni itself?)
    And, whats the deal with the thing on the accommodation website where its like "Applications for new undergraduates closed early" when they closed at the end of November?

    Ahhh, what a coincidence! I am in exactly the same situation. And what are the chances that we will be sharing the same room? I think the probability of this is extremely high; aprox. 1.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    Campus East is a walk to one beach and a short bus ride to a few more.
    But even Kooloobong is a short and free bus ride to the beach.

    Re: On Campus Accomodation

    Okay I got my offer!
    Did anyone else laugh at the alcohol restriction thing? It seems kind of excessive, not that i'm a big drinker or anything.
    And its so stupid that we have to pay for parking!!!
    Oh well, not like I have another option.
    Can someone tell me whats the go with internet access at Campus East? Do I have to buy my own thing or?
