About University Square

The overall aim of University Square is firstly to attract the right students, and then to provide a community based complex where excessive alcohol is NOT the focus.

Our interactive management is happy to supply free of charge, food, activities and events to assist with the spirit of Uni Square. For the benefit of everyone, we have a "no party policy" and a noise curfew between 11pm and 7am. Binge drinking or drinking games are not permitted on our property, nor do we want students who scream and shout, slam doors etc. Everyone has the "Right to Quiet Enjoyment" of our property at all times, day and night.

  • Clean.
  • Secure.
  • Friendly.
  • Location.
  • Experienced Management.

Ease Of Access To University And Public Transport

It is an unfortunate truth that some University Students have their studies as a low priority behind their social and party escapades. Generally these students enrol in part-time or low stress classes and then go about negatively impacting upon other students. We are by far the smallest (63 students) of all complexes and have had a really good vibe for many, many years. We provide an environment that is conducive to study, day and night. The results you achieve now will set you up later in life. Choose Uni Square, the complex with the highest % of returned guest year after year.

Where you live really does influence your academic results. Uni square provides an environment in which you can achieve to your full potential. You also have ease of access to university and public transport.
