Right Next To The Uni!

“Living to Learning in 5 Minutes”

It’s a gentle 5 minute walk to the University of the Sunshine Coast grounds – a flat path (it’s also floodlit at night) goes from outside our gate to the end of the street, through natural grassland into the University grounds.

The University of the Sunshine Coast is committed to quality and offer excellent educational opportunities that come combined with a relaxed environment. 


With nearby suburban shops including a supermarket, banks, fast food outlets, pharmacies, hotel, restaurants, cafes and much more, Sippy Downs is a young neighbourhood with plenty of young people enjoying everything the area has to offer.

Buses From University Take You Everywhere!

Bus stations at the University can take you to the surf beaches of Mooloolaba, shopping centres (Sunshine Plaza in Maroochydore is 15 minutes away and boasts cinemas, cafes, bottleshops, department stores and more).  The buses are very frequent (every 1/2 hour).

The O Week BBQ was a great way to meet so many nice people – I have made friends for life

By Sophia

The beach volleyball competitions were the best fun ever. Great prizes. There is always something fun to do at Varsity.

Varsity is super close to the Uni so you can always get there really quickly. Having so many students around Varsity to study with – that helped me as an international student.

By Karl

I like Varsity so much I stayed for 2 years. The staff are really friendly and there are so many great facilities – the lap pool and gym were my favourite.

By Elisha

When I arrived at Varsity I didn’t know anyone at all. The other three people in my apartment were all first year students too and didn't know anyone either. We all helped each other and it didn’t take me long to feel at home at Varsity.

Varsity Rocks!

I was really happy when I saw how close Varsity is to the Uni and the great bike tracks around the area. And the Kangaroos in the Uni grounds are amazing.

I won the Mac Book Air Pro prize at the start of my stay and it helped so much with my Uni studies. Thanks Varsity.
