First year options

If you're a new student starting your first year of study at UNE, you will likely move in to college one week earlier than returning students, so that you can be on campus for Wellness Week and Orientation. The options below are specifically for First Year students, commencing from Sunday February 18, 2018.

You can also browse options by college, or view all contract options, although not all of them are available to new residents.
