What to bring to college

The new Wright College buildings were completed and opened in 2015. Known throughout construction as "UNE's newest college", the name of Wright College was decided in honour of the historical Wright College, and to complete the 'Wright Precinct" - which, together with Wright Village, incorporates the independent, self-catered accommodation options at UNE.

This development keeps pace with the latest in design for college accommodation and provides students with more modern facilities and a new option in on-campus accommodation. Not only do you have your own in-room kitchenette and en-suite bathroom, there are also state-of-the art study and collaboration spaces, and outdoor community areas.

During the construction stage, when it was known only as "new college", UNE commissioned a virtual tour of a digital Wright College.

Wright College is self-catered accommodation. You will have your own in-room kitchenette with hotplate, microwave, medium fridge, and pantry space. There are also common cooking areas in each block and in the College common rooms, as well as multiple BBQ areas.

You can purchase meals from Walter's Cafe, located in Austin College, as well as from several venues on campus.
