More than a room

You get more than just a room at J23. You get a family and access to countless unique experiences with memories to last a lifetime.

Unlike other ANU residences, your room is all yours for the entire academic year. This includes the term and semester breaks so you can stay on campus to see friends, get some readings done ahead of time or enjoy all that Canberra has to offer.

Our college is also the only one on the ANU campus with an in-house catering team. This means you’ll get to know them, and they’ll get to know you. We’re also able to cater to any dietary requirements.

We offer a variety of rooms from singles with shared facilities to larger offerings with en-suites and annual fees starting from $21, 547.40.

For those who only need accommodation for a semester (for example if you’re on exchange), we can organise that as well.
