Accommodation/Meals for students

On-site accommodation

On-site accommodation and meals are available for policing students studying the Associate Degree in Policing Practice in session 2. Living on-site at the Police Academy has the benefit of living and learning in a policing environment with after-hours access to the Library, Learning Commons, physical fitness amenities and Wi-Fi. However, students have to be prepared that there may be circumstances where living on-site is not an option due to personal reasons or unavailability or residential rooms.

Alternative arrangements can be made available through private accommodation in the city of Goulburn, details of which can be obtained by contacting Campus Management on (02) 4828 8525.

Students can elect to have their $100 per week Accommodation and Travelling Allowance paid directly to the Police Academy to cover accommodation costs. All full time on campus students are provided with a $100 per week Accommodation and Travel Allowance which covers accommodation and meals during Session 2 of the Associate Degree in Policing Practice. Repeating or returning students are issued with the allowance, however there is one subject that if failed prevents that allowance from being allocated.  Students are encouraged to speak with the police hub regarding which failed subject this affects.

Applications for accommodation will be sent to you students via Interact2 by their session coordinator when the time is right.

Provided with the on-site accommodation is:

  • Linen (except bath towels and gym towels)
  • Coin operated washers and dryers ($2 coin)
  • Kettles/refrigerators/televisions are located in the residential common rooms

Students staying on-site need to bring:

  • Towels

  • Laundry detergent
  • Coffee mug
  • Iron
  • Hair dryer

The following is NOT permitted in the residential accommodation:

While it is not compulsory to stay on-site, it is strongly advised that you do so because of the demanding requirements of the training program and positive aspects of communal living, e.g. comradery, study groups, support network.

Fresh, daily changing, inventive and traditional

Our approach to food is simple - it should be prepared using the freshest ingredients and cater for all tastes with a clear focus on embracing healthy and nutritious options.

The hot food selection encompasses this philosophy and every day the bain-marie will offer a different line up of freshly cooked dishes. Whilst many dishes will have a contemporary healthy spin, traditional favourites and other comfort foods will always be readily available.

Food allergies and dietary requirements are taken into consideration when developing our menus and subsequently this information is communicated on all menus.

Within the Gallery Cafe our approach to coffee is simple - produce premium coffee fashioned by a qualified barista to create that great cafe "buzz". Using premium coffee beans, our barista will quickly learn your favourites. Enjoy a delicious range of freshly baked continental cookies, muffins, slices and scrolls that are sure to be a crowd pleaser and always available.
