As a student at the University of Technology Sydney, you will have the option of applying to live in either self- catered UTS residences, or catered accommodation. Both types are independent style accommodations within walking distance to campus and close to cafes, restaurants, shops and public transport facilities.

Self-Catered Residences

UTS Student Residences

Spread throughout the Haymarket area of Sydney, UTS Student Residences offer modern and spacious, self-catered apartment-style housing near Sydney’s transport hub, Darling Harbour and a variety of shopping precincts. Many of the residences have been given indigenous names out of respect for the traditional owners of the land, the Gadigal and Guring-gai people of the Eora Nation. Students are housed in a shared apartment featuring 2-7 single bedrooms with shared bathroom facilities, common area and kitchen. Other facilities include internet connections, computer labs, communal study/meeting rooms, recreational spaces, and opportunities to be involved in the many Residential Life events and activities. UTS Student Residences also offer strong support networks to UTS learning programs and counseling services.

Catered Accommodation

Urbanest Darling House

Urbanest Darling House is conveniently located near Sydney’s vibrant Darling Harbour, Haymarket and the Goods Line. It is within walking distance to UTS campus. Urbanest Darling House is a perfect accommodation choice for students wanting independence, without the worry of preparing or cooking meals for themselves.

Arcadia students living at Urbanest Darling House will share a twin bedroom with ensuite with one other student. The space is thoughtfully designed providing both students with their own study area and a private sleeping space. Rooms at Urbanest Darling House have an air-conditioning/heating unit and bed linen is provided. Students are also provided an internet plan, can utilize the onsite laundry, gaming room, theatre and study spaces, can participate in the uLife program of support, social events and intramural sports competition, and have free access to an onsite gym.

All meals are included for students living at Urbanest Darling House in the onsite dining room known as The Eatery. The eatery has generous opening hours offering a wide variety of 5-star quality meals prepared daily by an international team of chefs. Also included in the meal plan for students to enjoy is a juice bar, ice cream station, coffee stand, and ‘grab and go’ meal options should students have commitments elsewhere.

Additional housing may be arranged as needed and we will aim to provide similar locations and housing types as our regular options. If additional housing is necessary we will be in touch with students. Please note that while we ensure all housing satisfies general standards, there is no way to guarantee uniformity of apartment and room sizes, distance from university, furnishings or facilities.

*Please note that depending upon your housing assignment, an additional fee may apply. Please ask your Program Manager for details.
