The University of Western Australia (UWA) is a public research university in the Australian state of Western Australia. The university's main campus is in Perth, the state capital, with a secondary campus in Albany and various other facilities elsewhere.
UWA was established in 1911 by an act of the Parliament of Western Australia and began teaching students two years later. It is the sixth-oldest university in Australia and was Western Australia's only university until the establishment of Murdoch University in 1973. Because of its age and reputation, UWA is classed one of the "sandstone universities", an informal designation given to the oldest university in each state. The university also belongs to several more formal groupings, including the Group of Eight and the Matariki Network of Universities.
Alumni of UWA include one Prime Minister of Australia (Bob Hawke), five Justices of the High Court of Australia (including one Chief Justice, Robert French, now Chancellor), one Governor of the Reserve Bank (H. C. Coombs), various federal cabinet ministers, and seven of Western Australia's eight most recent premiers. In 2018 alumnus mathematician Akshay Venkatesh was a recipient of the Fields Medal. In 2014, the university produced its 100th Rhodes Scholar. Two members of the UWA faculty, Barry Marshall and Robin Warren won Nobel Prizes as a result of research at the university.
UWA's residential colleges - commonly referred to as College Row - provide hassle-free student accommodation in Perth. You'll enjoy an amazing lifestyle that includes meals, Wi-Fi, all your utilities and a great community of friends.
All five colleges are located opposite UWA, so you can sleep in late and still get to class on time! With public transport right on your doorstep, getting to the city, beach, and Perth's best shopping and nightlife areas is also quick and easy.
Crawley Village student accommodation is a collective group of residential houses, units and studio apartments owned and operated by UWA.
