UNSW Accomodation

Can you tell me which accommodation would be safer, more secure and better in general?
Creston College or Mulwaree Apartment?

unsw village is the ultimate party haven

barker st apartments is full of weird asians who don't speak english

warrane college is the closest you'll get to the american college archetype e.g. initiations, traditions etc. can't take girls into your room though

If I live in the colleges, I don't have to pay for electricity/utilities right? Only internet and printing?

Hey guys, was wondering what the main difference between Baxter, Basser and Goldstein is? And is new college too far from the med faculty?

Traditionally the difference between the 3 kenso colleges was the amount of beer consumed. It decreased, I think, in the order that you have listed them.

From New (or Warrane or Shalom) to the med buildings is indeed from one end of campus to the other.... max 15 minutes walk. Students living in Sydney might have a 1-2 hour commute each way!!

Not only that but opposite corners and opposite altitudes too.

max 15 minutes walk.
More like 10 mins downhill 20 mins uphill :)

indeed. there is "top campus" where the beautiful people study (only Med these days since Law moved down the hill) and bottom campus where the riff-raff study (eg engineering).

Note that there is also the UNSW village which provide self-catered accommodation near the pool.

What do you mean top campus where the beautiful people study?:O

Do you have any suggestions on accommodation if I want to be involved in social events like sports, but at the same time not sacrifice my studies as a Med student? (Eg the accommodation is not too noisy such that I cannot focus at when studying in my room)

My experience is very dated so can't make any suggestions.

As a general observation colleges tend to be more party-focused (sport, social...) or more work-focused. You might like to ask current med students how much time they have for social events. Might be a lot... or not.
