There are buses from Coogee to UNSW during the day until about 8pm (a short bus ride or a 30 minute walk, involving both uphill and downhill). After that time buses continue running between Coogee and Randwick. Have a look at our Travel page for more information about buses.
Mid-range - Guest Lodges
There are several guest lodges in Randwick. The four lodges mentioned below are all conveniently located within a few blocks of the UNSW campus. The rooms have tea-making facilities and a refrigerator, a desk or table, and an en-suite bathroom. The lodges do not provide breakfast, but they do have some shared facilities including a small guest kitchen for cooking, and a guest laundry. The four lodges all offer similar facilities: see their webpages.
The closest lodge to the UNSW campus is the Blenheim, which is only a block away. This is a fairly new building with a well-appointed shared kitchen. The Randwick, Perouse and High Cross Lodges are a few blocks away from campus and are older-style rambling buildings with a variety of rooms and a simple shared guest kitchen.
