Off Campus Living
College accommodation may not suit everyone. If you would prefer to live off-campus, Uni4Me can help you find shared accommodation, private board and local rentals in Armidale.
Most students studying at UNE choose to live in share houses or apartments. Shared housing is a great way to meet new friends and be a part of a learning and social environment off campus.
In considering off-campus living you should take into account the terms of tenancy agreements including costs such as power, water and communications as well as transport arrangements to and from campus.
