Our residential packages cover all living expenses, including some you might not have thought of yet- such as unlimited WiFi, so you can budget confidently and avoid shocks and hidden costs.

What you’re not paying for is also important. Our fees are only for one or two semesters (21 or 42 weeks) of the University of Sydney year, so you don’t end up paying for vacation weeks when you’re back at home or travelling over the summer break. Commercial student accommodation providers and private rental arrangements generally oblige you to sign a 52-week contract.

The semester fees cover:

  • Private, fully furnished modern bedroom including sink, linen, heater and fan
  • Welcome Week for semester one (including accommodation, meals, t-shirts and activities)
  • Seventeen meals per week during the academic semester (17 weeks) and breakfast during the winter break (3 weeks) and end of year (1 week).
  • Unlimited free WiFi of unfiltered with 20Mbps speeds guaranteed through private provider BigAir Community Broadband during the academic year
  • Utilities including electricity, gas and water
  • Cleaning including weekly room service
  • Facilities including library, games room (pool table, cable TV and wii), lounge room (piano, table tennis and data projector) and kitchenettes
  • Nightly snacks and massages during the study vacation and exam period.

A welcoming and warm place immersed in cultural diversity,
great memories and friends for life!

Audrey, New Caledonia

It is wonderful to have a spacious and fully furnished bedroom
to which I can retreat to after a busy day of classes!

I love that I always have a healthy option
at every meal that is also delicious!

Rebecca, USA

When you go to uni with 60,000 people,
it’s nice to come back to a family of 40 at the end of the day.

Mandelbaum House has been the most diverse,
welcoming, active society I have ever been involved in.
