• Is there air conditioning?

  • The colleges (Basser, Goldstein, Philip Baxter, Fig Tree Hall, Colombo House) and the University Terraces have been built to the highest standards to provide a comfortable environment and whilst the bedrooms aren’t air-conditioned, they do have a ceiling fan.

    UNSW Hall, which is an older building, is not air-conditioned; most rooms have a heater for the cooler months.

    Barker, Mulwarree and High St aren’t air conditioned. You can bring a fan or heater, but it’s very important the heater complies to certain standards for health and safety reasons. Heaters with an exposed element, small fan heaters and bar heaters are strictly prohibited. You should only use enclosed column heaters with a maximum capacity not exceeding 1,200 watts. 

    If you're not sure your heater is okay, please contact the Student Accommodation office for advice.
