If you're unsure whether you would prefer catered or self-catered accommodation, read on for more details.
If you would like catered accommodation you will live in our collegiate-style residence, University Hall.
Our dining room serves three meals (breakfast, packed lunch, dinner) Mondays through Fridays. Toast, spreads and beverages are offered throughout the day.
Our residents live busy lives on the weekends so our dining room is closed. They may be off-campus playing sport, working part-time jobs, visiting family or friends, or heading into the city or to the beach. Sometimes, they even like to sleep in late. This being the case, they like the freedom of being able to source their own meals whether this be wherever they are off-campus. If they are in the Hall on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, our residents will cook for themselves using the well-equipped kitchenettes conveniently located down the corridor in each area.
Our weekly food cost is currently $122.00 per week (including GST) which translates to around $8.13 for each of those 15 meals.
That’s exceptional value for money. Think about how much time it would take you to plan your weekly meals, go out and purchase your ingredients, cook them up and, don’t forget, do the washing up! In the Hall this is all done for you!
Our residents really appreciate the service provided by our catering partners CaterCare Australia. Here’s what some of our residents told us earlier in the year:
- The food is really good and the staff are friendly and kind.
- I cannot fault CaterCare. They should be congratulated on all aspects of their cooking and service.
- I really enjoy how Friday especially feels like a special day as represented by the food we receive for dinner. I quite like how the hot breakfasts are spread throughout the week.
- The CaterCare team always lifts us up, brightening up our evenings. They are a lovely bunch of people and we are fortunate to have them catering for us.
