UniLodge Community Spirit Program

our CSP program is designed to offer a wide range of activities across several categories:

Academic and Careers

To support residents through their study so they can achieve the best results possible and to assist them with developing skills that will assist in improving their career prospects and employability. 

Social and Wellbeing

To provide residents with an Australian / New Zealand experience, build like-long friendships, encouraging cultural integration and with this, increased understanding and value of multiculturalism.

Sporting and Cultural

To offer residents opportunities for growth - mentally, spiritually, staying active, forming friendships and team building.

Sustainability

Provide residents with practical ways of making a difference whilst living at UniLodge and work together in minimising their footprint on the environment. 

Philanthropy & Community Giving

To engage residents in a range of social responsibility practices, learing through participation.
