The newly completed student residencies located on Northfields Avenue at UOW deliver a unique and contemporary accommodation solution that complements the strengths and qualities of the campus. With a total of 1054 beds across four buildings in two locations, the facility is focused on the integration of learning and social opportunities in a residential context. 

The 254 bed Northfields building was custom designed to cater to postgraduate accommodation. The seven storey building wraps around a north facing courtyard and offers studio accommodation as well as family rooms and suites. Northfields provides parking for 42 vehicles and over 30 bicycle spaces.

The 800 bed Kooloobong site is specifically designed to accommodate undergraduate students and was planned over three eight storey buildings. The buildings overlook two large courtyards, naturally enclosing and defining the outdoor space as private. The onsite car parks provide parking for 116 vehicles and over 50 bicycle parking spaces. The three buildings are connected via covered walkways to encourage interaction of the students whilst allowing each building to have a separate identity through careful façade design and palette selection.
