Studying at Notre Dame – accommodation options
Accommodation: Posted 8-9-15 Deadline - No Deadline
The University of Notre Dame has two sites in Sydney, both located in vibrant communities. The main campus at Broadway is part of a larger education precinct which includes UTS and the University of Sydney. Notre Dame is well serviced by public transport, with Central Station being a short walk away and hundreds of buses stopping outside the campus on Broadway each day. There are also many accommodation options for students to consider. While there is no on-campus accommodation at Notre Dame, the University promotes a wide range of accommodation providers whose facilities are located very close to or adjacent to the Broadway campus. These accommodation facilities house students from all three universities, with study and class being just a short walk away. Notre Dame’s students studying Nursing or Medicine at the Darlinghurst site can also stay in the Broadway precinct or choose accommodation closer to the Darlinghurst site.

Through Notre Dame’s list of accommodation providers, prospective students can source and assess a range of providers and choose the accommodation that’s right for them – whether it’s a single room, sharing with one or more other students, with a meal package, or any other option in the wide range available. Prospective students can look at the options in the accommodation guide online and make direct contact with the accommodation facility.
