The top floor of the grand old building in Dawson St, Cooks Hill, one block back from cosmopolitan Darby St is home to five YWCA House (2)international female students. The location is ideal for close proximity to Newcastle University city campus where the international students attend classes.

The building currently accommodates five female residents. YWCA Hunter is excited to provide affordable accommodation for our international students, who show so much appreciation for this service and a fascination with the Australian culture. It is our hope that we can enrich their lives as they most certainly enrich ours.

Our residents tell us - 

‘I love living at the YWCA building in Newcastle. It is so close to all the good shopping and food place. To have no car is perfectly ok as I can walk also to the University City campus. And I can do so on my own at night as it is quick. The people are very lovely here also. Very friendly and helpful with all things. Also lots of things happening around here all the time so never get lonely and only sometimes homesick.’
