With residents of such distinct cultures in the hall, it is nearly impossible for one to go through a day without meeting someone from a vastly different background. This diversity is something Ursula Hall is very proud of, as it often leads to students broadening their horizons through friendships made across the world.
The relaxed and friendly atmosphere, excellent accommodation and services (including 24-hour access to computers and laundry facilities), and close proximity to lecture theatres make Ursula Hall an excellent on-campus accommodation. Additionally, being located right near Canberra City, Ursula Hall is naturally the first preference for many international students coming to The Australian National University.
Coming to another country to study can be a daunting experience initially. Ursula Hall appoints two later year students to assist with this transition to tertiary education in Australia. As the first point of contact for many new international students, they assist with enrolment, encouragement involvement in the many social activities the Hall has to offer, or any other problems that may arise.
Ursies provides a fantastic and enjoyable "home-away-from-home" for all residents, in the provision of pastoral, academic and social support, especially for international students. This is reflected by the fact that a vast number of residents, both international and domestic, stay at the Hall for the entire duration of their degree. Want to make the most of your Australian university experience? Then Ursula Hall is what you're looking for!
