Our campuses are designed to work together. You can travel from one to the other with ease, making living and studying an interchangeable option. 



Moving away from home is one of the biggest decisions you'll make. It's also one of the most empowering and exciting moments of your life, giving you your own space to study, socialise and meet new friends.

Life at USW

Studying a course at USW is more than just earning a degree. Here, you'll make friends for life, try out and learn lots of new things and become more independent than ever before.
