Rural students support
Congratulations on joining our community.
You’re about to start a very exciting journey and will most likely encounter significant changes to where you live, how you study, the people that you socialise with, and many other aspects of your life.
The University can help you make a smooth transition into university life. Here are some resources you may find helpful.
Where will I live?
There are a number of options available to you. If you haven’t found somewhere to live already, we recommend that you start looking now. Places fill up quickly on and around campus, but we have several resources that can help you find a new home. Have a look at the Student Accommodation Services page more information.
