NEDLANDS resident Ziwei Mao will be one of the inaugural students to make Perth’s first inner-city living student hub, Campus Perth, his home.

The 19-year-old UWA medical student jumped at the opportunity to be part of Perth’s new inter-collegiate experience.

“It’s a unique living experience which promotes independence in terms of cooking and having your own space, but there’s also the benefit of communal living and support from others around you,” he said.

The off-campus student accommodation hub will be the first of its kind in WA to offer students alternatives to living at home, renting privately or living in university accommodation.

Campus Perth general manager Bram Newbold said the space was designed to achieve the perfect balance of study, social life and wellness, with more than 3600sq m of communal space.

“Students will have access to The Link, a co-working space equipped with the latest technology and connectivity including Wi-Fi, USB charging stations, screening options and monitors,” he said.

“The Commons will feature a variety of different areas to relax and take a break from studying – all in a vibrant environment with gaming and screens.

“A fullyequipped fitness club will also be accessible for students, with regular fitness classes available and several communal kitchens and a BBQ rooftop will complement the community areas.”

Campus Perth on Stirling Street and is set to open in January 2019.
