I’m from New Delhi, India and moved with my partner to Sydney in 2015 to start my law degree. Since the city and people were absolutely new to us, we decided to opt for university accommodation.

It was a smooth process to get a place and move in. It also meant we didn’t have to worry about electricity or internet bills and maintenance requirements were always taken care of, leaving heaps of time for studying, entertainment and relaxation.

I’m an international student from Singapore in the first year of my undergraduate studies. I always knew I wanted to live on campus, at least for the first year so I could focus on my studies and settle in quickly without having to worry about buying furniture and bills. I also knew I wanted to live alone. And so, after careful consideration, I applied for the Terraces and it’s really been the perfect option for me.
