Student support

Community Assistants are current UNSW students living on-site at University Terraces. Their role is to engage with residents, facilitate social activities and act as the first point of contact for any issues or problems that may arise.

"Living on campus is so convenient, letting me wake up later and I can stay in the library till late, knowing home is only a few minutes away."
