Statement of Intent

"Live the UniLodge Life."

UniLodge has been providing pastoral care for students for over 20 years and our Residential Life Programme aims to foster inclusive communities through a diverse range of events and initiatives to support residents to achieve academic success.

We understand that university is a transformative time in a student’s life, and we build our program around this to inspire development, build lifelong friendships, and support students through any challenges they may encounter.

All of our staff receive training and resources to be able to assist students to access the right support for them, ranging from helping residents adapt to living away from home, accessing financial support, or helping them find a counsellor to talk things through.

UniLodge has strong industry partnerships with universities and other institutions to help students navigate their options, as well as inform them of community-based resources.

Each resident is a unique individual and can expect from UniLodge, an environment that has clear, reasonable and effective practices, and that aligns with the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of Domestic Tertiary and International Learners.
