The UNSW has varied accommodation options for international students who can enjoy campus life and student activities in a multicultural environment. As the accommodation intake is limited, and there are thousands of students enrolled in the university in multiple courses and levels of study, the Student Assistance office in UNSW offers help to students who do not manage to arrange accommodation inside the campus. The student residence halls in UNSW have a phone, Internet, water and other utility amenities and healthy meal plans suited for students of all nationalities and communities.
The annual accommodation and meal expenses in UNSW are AU$ 22,500 for international students.
