Meet a student from UNSW Hall.

Yordanos Setargew


I’m from Wollongong, NSW and in my first year studying medical science. Living on campus is a decision I know I’ll never regret, it truly immerses you in all aspects of university life.

I’ve met a variety of different people from all over the world and across Australia, all studying vastly different courses. As well its academic vibe, UNSW Hall facilitates a wide range of extra-curricular activities, such as the City Scavenger Hunt, Art Club and Inter-college sports competitions.

I haven’t lived here long, but I’m excited for the year ahead and I know I’ve already found friendships that will last a life-time.

What are you studying?

Medical science.

What 3 words describe UNSW Hall?

Any advice to students in their first year at UNSW Hall?

Get involved! Say hello to people and join any sporting or leadership groups you’re interested in. Everyone is feeling just a nervous as you, so put yourself out there and enjoy!
