I've been living here for a year and a half now. The thing I like the most about this place is that they take mental health very seriously and regularly check with their residents. The staff were very supportive and helpful during the pandemic. Amazing place to live !!!

Its been more than a Year in Melbourne as well as in Unilodge @ VU and I have never shifted to other places. Reason being the facilities provided on cheaper rates. For international students, bearing expenses of rent is really tough. I am paying the same amount what my other friends are paying and the best part is the events which occurs every week, you will get lots of friends to interact and network with.
