Why the Regiment Building is your new home on campus

23 November 2018
The Regiment Building is the new kid on the block
A brand-new dorm-style accommodation on the corner of City Rd and Darlington Rd will open its doors in February 2019. If you’re hunting for a student residence, the new Regiment Building is a great place to start.

Location, location, location

Situated in a prime location near the southern end of Eastern Avenue, a few steps from Sydney Uni Sports & Aquatic Centre and a stone’s throw from Newtown’s vibrant King Street, you couldn’t ask for a better location for soaking up student life. You’ll be able to wake up, roll out the door and still make it to your lecture in less than 10 minutes.

Always in good company

With 620 rooms and tons of communal spaces, you’ll never have trouble finding company for a study session, or a snack break. If you’re living away from home for the first time, it’s reassuring to know you have a resident adviser and a bunch of friendly neighbours to support you, whether you’re dealing with a kitchen disaster or a tough exam period.

Peace and privacy

While uni accommodation is a social environment, introverts will be relieved to know that there are no shared bedrooms – you’ve always got a solo sanctuary kitted out with a TV and fridge to escape to. Secure, dorm-style accommodation is a lot more private than a sharehouse – you don’t need to worry about your roommate snoring or borrowing your stuff when you’re not there.

So much room for activities!

The new Regiment Building is a feature-packed facility, designed with lots of areas for socialising, studying and learning new skills. There are maker spaces, a light-filled conservatory, tutorial rooms, music rooms and games rooms. Not to mention an incubator space decked out with a VR studio, workshop and 3D printers. And the icing on the brick-cake: five cascading rooftop terraces with views that’ll never get old. Beats hanging out in your parents’ lounge room, right?

Safe and secure

The Regiment has all the modern security features you’d expect to ensure you and your stuff remains safe. You’ll have swipe access to get in and out and a night manager for extra reassurance after hours. Plus, residential advisors and campus security are always around to make sure everything is in order. 

Rooms are filling up fast – apply now to be one of the first residents of the Regiment Building in 2019.
