If you are considering moving to Sydney and wanting to get a sense of what it would be like to live at UniLodge @ UNSW. Check out our interview with Christopher, who is the Property Manager of UniLodge @ UNSW and we asked him what his top tips are for new residents and what is great in the local area to enjoy.  

What is yout favourite room or facility in the property?

I love all the apartments at UniLodge @ UNSW, as they are not only fully furnished and cleaned fortnightly, but bed linen and towels are provided and laundered every two weeks, the kitchens are fully equipped, and every room has unlimited Wi-Fi internet service. It’s great facility and less stress for student just move in to UniLodge family.

What’s the name of your favourite local food/shop? 

I enjoy HOM Thai restaurant! They provide Authentic Thai, my favourite dish – Pad See Ew.  Try this, seriously very delicious…. yummy!  

What does Residential Life mean to you? 

Residential Life means students who get the most out of living at UniLodge @ UNSW, enjoy and respect the diversity of the Residential Life Program, making a new friendship from diverse backgrounds, and in the meantime focusing on their learning goals in Australia.

What has been your favourite Residential Life Event? 

My favourite event was – Masquerade Welcome Party in back in September 2018. There was a very funny night, lots of different and glamorous masks worn by residents in the lounge room. Residents were enjoyed all delicious food and music.  Everyone has a fantastic time.  It was a great EVENT!

If you could give new residents one tip before they arrive. What would it be? 

My tip would be to enjoy our Residential Life Program, offering a unique opportunity to develop strong friendship with other student from diverse backgrounds and enjoy cultural exchange experience, and you can connect with hundreds of students.

What’s the last compliment your team received? 

We received some warm feedback from our residents’ parents, especially we are look after and take care of them under 18 years old children at UniLodge @ UNSW.

What do you love most about being a Property Manager? 

I very much feel like a father especially dealing with hundreds of under 18 years old residents, and love to work closely with University of New South Wales and together share the guardianship responsibilities for those young students.

Why should the person reading this pick your property as their new home? 

You should choose UniLodge @ UNSW, because of, we are committed to helping students find their way, we know students are very different and we are tailoring our service to them, and we respect our residents as our customers and we recognise that we play am important part in their academic and personal development.  And remember, everyone on the UniLodge @ UNSW team are here to help you settle in and feel at home throughout your stay, so always feel free to come and have a chat with myself or any member of my team.  Enjoy your stay!
