Built for the Sydney Olympics in 2000, Macquarie University Village (MUV) is a good location if you’re seeking a more independent style of housing at Macquarie.  With a 10-12 minute walk to central campus, MUV provides self-catered housing in apartments for five or six students. In your apartment, you will live with other international students. You will have a single bedroom with a private, en-suite bathroom, along with a shared living room, kitchen, and patio area. Laundry and BBQ/game facilities are located within the Village complex, a short 5-6 minute walk away. A linen pack will be provided upon arrival.


Opened in early 2021, the Central Courtyard is the only housing option managed and operated by Macquarie University. It is located in the heart of the campus, with lecture and campus facilities a few moments walk away. Apartments are made up of either four or six bedrooms with shared bathroom, kitchen and living spaces. As a resident, you will have special access to events and facilities that include study spaces, common rooms, game facilities and outdoor terrace areas with barbecues. Apartments include Individually Controlled Air Conditioning and Heating; SMART Flatscreen TV; Lounge Area; Large Fridge Freezer; Oven and Dishwasher. The Central Courtyard location is slightly more expensive than MUV, as it was built more recently with modern comforts and facilities.
