Sydney Campus

Located on the grounds of the Sydney Adventist Hospital (SAH), nursing student accommodation is provided by Adventist HealthCare Limited on behalf of Avondale. 

Why on campus living?

Living on-campus means that you can enjoy the convenience of everything being just a few minutes walk from your room – classes, cafeteria, gym, sporting facilities and social gatherings.

Housed within the one building, the gender specific female and male residences house up to 240 boarders. Student rooms are all single occupancy with use of shared facilities.

Age restrictions are applied to applicants, with a minimum acceptable age of 18 years of age. Applicants under the age of 18 years are advised to attend the Lake Macquarie campus for their first year of study.
