Ilam Apartments (all students, self-catered)

Ilam Apartments is a modern apartment-style complex that offers independent living on campus for 847 residents, whether you are in your first-year, or completing postgraduate study. The secure, fully-equipped, modern apartments are situated on campus next to the Ilam Homestead and Gardens and will enable you to discover a great community of like-minded students, just five minutes’ walk from lecture theatres and other campus facilities.  The Ilam Apartments offers a diverse community with students of all ages, at all levels of study and from all over the world.  View our 360° panoramas.

Due to a demand for fully-catered accommodation, Ilam Apartments are offering a fully-catered 41-week contract for first year students in the newer Hinau 4-5 bedroom apartments.  The rate is $378 per week with breakfast available on site and lunch and dinner at University Hall.  Residents can expect a first year living/learning environment located together with access to support, tutorials and events.  If rooms become available at University Hall or Sonoda, residents will be moved across at the discretion of Campus Living Villages.
