ANU SA8 Student Accommodation


Student Accommodation

The ANU SA8 project, named Yukeembruk, delivers 731 student accommodation beds with single occupant rooms in 3 buildings across 4-6 storeys. This is the University’s largest residence to date and brings the total number of on-campus beds at the ANU Acton campus to just over 6,400. The design of the complex is based on recommendations via a student survey which emphasised the importance of both indoor and outdoor communal spaces to encourage greater interaction among students.

The construction comprises of:

  • Associated resident recreation facilities, common rooms and kitchen facilities
  • Associated administration facilities
  • Dining halls
  • Bicycle parking
  • Hard and soft landscape works including recreational courtyards and outdoor BBQ areas
  • Associated community facilities including a basketball court, share way and mixed-use village green area
