Uni Wollongong to reduce student accommodation  

The university will close two student residences “throughout 2021”, because “occupancy rates are low and the sense of community that our students enjoy has been effected” 

Residents who relocate to other university housing will get a 10 per cent cut in accommodation costs.

It’s not the only housing issue UoW faces. Word is it is contractually obliged to underwrite 85 per cent occupancy on some facilities – which are now half-full. UoW says it “does not comment on the details of contractual discussions or arrangements.”
