Coming to college can be a daunting and overwhelming experience, especially if it is your first time away from home. For this reason we have included some basic “know how” information so that you can feel at ease and prepared for your arrival at University Hall.

mail_room_postageMail is sorted in the Residential Life office according to surname. Mail will only be sorted if it has a resident’s name on it. Any incorrectly addressed mail will be returned to sender.

Please ensure that any mail sent to you is addressed as follows:

Your First and Last Name
University Hall, UWA
130 Winthrop Avenue

When arranging delivery to the Hall, please be aware that there is a flat charge of $10 for the handling and storage of packages over 1kg in weight.

A self-service laundry is located on the ground floors of M, E, J, K and L Houses. A clothesline is available on the grassed area behind B House.

It is not advisable to leave clothes on the line or in the laundry overnight. Washing machines must not be overloaded as this causes damage and prevents proper washing.

The washers and dryers take tokens and cost $2 each. The token dispenser can be found in the K House laundry room; it takes $10 notes. Foreign coins must not be used.

Any form of damage or maintenance is to be logged online via the University Hall Portal. Residents will need their Entry ID and Password, the same login details they used to submit their University Hall application.

Please provide as much detail as possible when submitting a maintenance report. Our maintenance staff will contact you as soon as possible to arrange a time for repair.

In every Studio Room, One Bedroom Apartment and communal kitchen area there are state of the art smoke detectors.

In the event that you accidentally set off a fire alarm, please press the acknowledge button for at least six seconds.  This will notify local fire services of the false alarm. If you do not disarm the fire alarm in time you will be liable to cover the fee charged to University Hall by local fire services. More information can be found in the University Hall Handbook – please refer to this.
