Sydney Opal Housing
The Australian gemstone signifies an Australian student-style of housing and is the closest to the type of accommodation that a majority of local students might reside. “Opal” indicates on-campus dormitories, off-campus apartments or “village-style” accommodations that are often managed by a University or housing provider for students. Facilities are most commonly shared. Extras such as televisions, internet packages, linens, and cookery are often available, but are an additional expense. Meal plans are sometimes mandatory. This style of accommodation is the typical standard offered by other study abroad programs to Australia.
