    About the halls


    Located directly across the road from Victoria University Footscray Park and a short walk to Footscray Nicholson Campus, UniLodge @ VU is your smart student accommodation option.

    UniLodge @ VU offers new purpose built student accommodation apartments for undergraduate and postgraduate students looking for modern living with excellent facilities and a community environment – all within a short walking distance to classes! It’s a part of the Footscray University Town and located right next to the Footscray train station, tram and bus stops for a 10 minute ride to the Melbourne CBD. The Victoria University St Albans Campus is located an 18 minute drive from the property.

    Choose from a great range of ultra-modern apartments including studio rooms and 2 bedroom and 6 bedroom shared apartments. All apartments are self-contained and fully furnished with large beds, mattresses, wardrobes and storage space, and study desks and chairs along with your kitchen appliances. Our 6 bedroom apartments are a great choice for more space and to make new friends for those who prefer living with roommates.

    UniLodge @ VU recommends the 6 Bedroom Apartment, as the smartest room category choice, because these are not “dorms” – they are luxurious 125m2 apartments; with key-card access to private bedrooms, huge fully equipped kitchen, separate dining area and comfy TV lounge with ceiling to floor windows. It is the best way to integrate and sharpen your social integration and well-being – whilst maintaining the privacy of your own key-card accessed bedroom. And all this, at the lowest price point!

    Your rent includes electricity, gas, water and a massive 50GB WiFi internet – a combined saving of $125 a month! You’ll also have access to our excellent student common areas, including study rooms, a state of the art cinema room with wide screen TVs, outdoor BBQ areas, rooftop terrace and herb garden, gourmet kitchens and even a pool table and games rooms. Access to our building is safe and secure, with electronic key card access to all areas and CCTV security monitoring.

    UniLodge is more than just a place to live, with our very active Residential Life Program, Community Spirit – offering a great range of fun events and activities, along with career and life skill workshops.
