who we are

Stephanie Walsh

Village Manager

Steph is the lady you’ll see out and about, meeting new residents and making sure that Village life is a well-oiled machine! She is responsible for managing the staff members at the Village, and making sure that your questions are answered, your lights are on, your parties are fun and your study is uninterrupted. Come to Steph if you’ve got any questions, or if you just want to chat with a friendly face!

Alicia Garling

Operations Manager

Peter Earnshaw

Asset Facilities Manager

You’ll find Peter working across all Village campuses at the Western Sydney University, so make sure you say hello when you see him! He is in charge of overseeing all facilities provided to you during your stay and is passionate about making the Village as comfortable as possible. Come and see Steve if you have a concern with your apartment, or if you just need a break from study and a chat!

Luke Fitzpatrick

Duty Manager

Luke is your man when it comes to anything you need after hours. At the Village you will never be locked out or alone if you don’t want to be! Luke is always around if you need a spare key, a friendly chat or you just have a general question. You’ll be getting to know Luke well during your stay, so come and say hi!

Melanie Sharkey

Customer Service Agent

You’ll find Melanie behind the front desk answering questions, taking payments or just hanging out with the residents. Make sure you speak to her if you have a question or you just need some local knowledge!

Ori Mattioli

Property Services Coordinator

Ori is the guy you’ll see walking around the Village property, making sure everything is in good working order. If you need a light bulb replaced, your hot water isn’t working, or you just aren’t sure how to use your microwave, he’s your man!
