Charles Sturt University has announced it will open a residential facility for 250 students for the beginning of Session One in February 2018.
Located next to the Port Macquarie campus, three accommodation buildings will initially provide 112 rooms that include a bedroom with desk and ensuite bathroom for each student, communal lounge rooms and kitchens, and access to student recreational areas in a separate building.
"The accommodation is an important addition to the services on offer at Charles Sturt University in Port Macquarie, particularly for prospective students from outside the local area," said Head of CSU in Port Macquarie, Professor Heather Cavanagh.
CSU will lease the facility from Sydney-based Chase Property Investments, which is working with commercial builder Intelligent Building Systems International, from Brisbane, to complete the planned facility which is due to total 250 beds by February 2018.
The next academic session for students attending the Port Macquarie campus is due to commence with Orientation Week from Monday 20 February.
