University Square

Melbourne Student Accommodation

‘University Square’ situated on Pelham Street in Carlton is the first student accommodation of its kind in Melbourne, with service, safety and security at its heart. Getting to lectures couldn’t be easier with the University of Melbourne and RMIT just a short walk away. The Melbourne Business School is just across the street and transport links give you easy access to most major UoM schools and colleges in the city.

University Square is a home to 345 students and offers a wide selection of beautifully furnished en-suite rooms and studios. The residence offers an extensive array of common spaces and facilities giving you the opportunity to enjoy your own private space when you want to, or to socialise and study with friends.

Exclusive Semester 2 Promotion

Studios at University Square are now available for $489 a week! We know living on a student budget can be tough, so we’ve lowered the rent on our studios to make it easier for you to live the sweet life with us at University Square.

Studios included in the offer are Standard Studios and Studios with Terrace.

Book now or arrange a viewing of University Square.

Your home in the heart of Melbourne

Melbourne is constantly ranked among the top 5 most liveable cities in the world by the Economist. It’s the cultural capital of Australia and some even say it’s the sporting capital of the world.

Student life in Melbourne couldn’t be better, the city is home to 8 universities boasting 300,000+ students, making it Australia’s biggest university city. If you’re looking for a vibrant, buzzing and diverse university experience, you’ve come to the right place.

Your room choices at University Square

Here at The Student Housing Company Australia there are several different types of accommodation for you to choose from. If you like living with friends or making new ones then an en-suite room in a shared apartment would be perfect for you. With 2, 3, 4 & 6 bedroom apartments available, this option gives you the best of both worlds; privacy when you want it or fun on tap in the shared kitchen and lounge.

If two of you want to share a room and cut the costs then our twin studios would be perfect for you. You’ll share a kitchen area and a bathroom but still benefit from your own bedroom and study space within the room.

Prefer having your own space? Or maybe you’re a postgraduate who needs to knuckle down and study hard without distractions, then a Studio or 1 bed apartment will be ideal for you. With all the same great features of the en-suite rooms, just with your own kitchen and lounge space to boot, we’ve got 6 different types so you’ll be spoiled for choice!

We’ve got everything covered

Our mission is to help you make the most of your time at uni, so we take care of all the little things so you don’t have to. Here’s what your rent gets you:

  • A fully furnished room
  • On-site residence team
  • On-site maintenance team (we’ll fix anything that breaks and we’re quick about it too)
  • All your utility bills taken care of
  • High-speed broadband and WiFi throughout the building (we know how important that is to you)
  • Air conditioning in all our studios and apartments
  • On-site laundry facilities (you’ll be thankful for that)
