Pros: Very good location, close proximity to public transports, groceries, restaurants and university. Receptionist and residential advisors are very kind and helpful. There are cleaners cleaning common area everyday. Cons: Most of the facilities are rather old and constantly require maintenance. Rooms were quite spacious but have very thin walls and very bad sound proof. Good luck trying to get a good sleep if you have inconsiderate neighbour. Conclusion: For the cheap price I was paying, I can't complain much (you get what you pay). But I wouldn't recommend this as a 1st choice for students.

The building has banned visitors to enter this building. However, yesterday I saw a guy with a girl from outside (she did not look familiar to me so I asked where she lived when we encountered in the corridor, she said she was not the resident here). UniLodge does not have concrete policy to completely stop visitors to come in. How dangerous it is.

You can meet a lot of friendly people with the way the building is set up with a shared kitchen. The fortnightly barbeques and events are both really fun and well priced. The location is great and it's a great price for the proximity to university.

I would give them 2-3 stars. Given the pest problem, the constant state of non cleanliness, the lifts constantly being broken and the management not dealing with these issues in a way that resolved them permanently. However, there was a real sense of community there - so I would still recommend it if you can deal with those things. But given I saw 4 reviews from RAs that were working there at the time that they reviewed it - for 4 stars and for 5 stars, I’m giving them one star to balance it out a little. Edited it from 2 to 4 reviews because I double checked and there were actually 4 reviews from RAs there - a little dodgy don’t you think?

It is so close to UniMelb and with a fair price. I love the weekly community events that push me out-door to explore the city with only $5. Some people do complaint about the mice issue but it never occurred to me even living here for 2 years now. I guess I am lucky and I am happy staying here.
