the best start to university

Your first year of university is coming up. You’ve worked hard to get to this point.

You are nervous excited. You are anxiously curious. You have high expectations.

You are about to make a step that will change everything. You will create the first version of your independent life, your V1.

That’s where we come in.

You’ll join the V1 Crew, you’ll connect with our dedicated team who are highly trained in showing you the best way to get the most of your on-campus student experience.

Your V1 is an amazing journey. Your V1 is the right balance between vibrancy of life and academic success.

V1 is your key to starting uni well. And we don’t have to tell you that when things start well, they typically finish well.

You are excited… You are going to want to swipe down.


We’re here to get the results that matter…

We understand that it’s important to achieve that balance between having fun and getting work done. To complement our high energy communities, we’ve got high speed wireless internet throughout our villages so you can study on the go. Our e-libraries boast group and private study spaces that are designed to suit your study style.


Can I help you?

With trained staff on site 24 hours a day, we are there when you need it. We have developed systems to make sure that all our residents can get the help they need, as and when they need it.

Our dedicated team of Resident Assistants (RAs) are hand picked directly from the student community. They’re responsible for organising events and helping you settle in to uni life.

And you know what really counts? RA’s are students too! They’ve been in your shoes and get what it’s like to be new on campus.


V1 is all about linking you and your uni to make the student experience the best it can be. The V1 Crew will reach out to you before you arrive and answer the niggling questions we know you have!

You’ll be part of a thriving student community with awesome social events, educational facilities and learning opportunities right at your doorstep.

Whether you want to relax in the lounge, take part in a cooking class or do some last minute work on your essay, you won’t have to go far. We’ve got a range of facilities designed especially for students, so you can be sure that we’re prepared for your busy lifestyle.


Our villages are as cool as icebergs. And what you see is just the tip.

Under the vibrant communities and exciting events, is a swaddle of important safety and support goodness that you don’t always see, but will always feel. Our staff are fully trained in crisis management, first aid and how to integrate with local emergency services!

Safety is a priority. We have staff on-site throughout the day, CCTV monitoring, intermittent university security patrols and individually lockable bedrooms.


Skyrocket your attendance by choosing to live on campus!

Most of our villages are located right on campus, so you can wake up and be in class minutes later. You’ll be right in the heart of the action, right as it happens.


Dive in!

Cool like a holiday resort, but a resort that’s located in the innovation and knowledge zone of your uni of choice. Living at our villages is a whole heap of fun.

Across Australia, villages are home to thousands of members of the V1 Crew. Every. Single. Year.

Great facilities, awesome events, experienced staff support around the clock and consistently high customer service rankings. We have class leading foundations in place to make uni life awesome.

Psst! did you know that students who live on-campus perform better academically?


Rock on V1!

V1 plugs you straight into a community that is all about living, learning and growing! You’ll make friendships that will change your life. You will forge bonds with people that you will carry with you for a lifetime.

Live it up with sports competitions, weekend trips and themed parties to make meeting new people all the more exciting. Learn new things with essay writing classes, study facilities and tutor groups so you can excel in your studies. Grow with charity fundraisers, yoga classes and job skill workshops so you can prepare yourself for uni and beyond!
