Student Life Supporting young people in higher education starts with a home environment where they can live, learn and grow. This crucial stage in their development is often one of the most positive and rewarding experiences in their adult lives. Our residential life program offers a range of events so students can meet new people, make friends, learn invaluable skills and perform in their studies. We customise the framework to suit the needs of individual village communities. Just like our villages – no two programs are alike.

Student Short Stays We like to be flexible and to meet different needs. Our Student Short Stays option offers students short-term accommodation at selected campuses. It’s about providing a convenient solution for students who are travelling for a short course or who need to cut the commute during exams.

The CLV Difference

Student accommodation is more than just four walls and a bed, so we focus on creating an exciting student experience that will be remembered for years to come. “the student experience is our calling” We understand that students have complex needs and expectations. For them, university is about living away from home for the first time, making new friends, taking on new challenges and learning how to excel in their studies. We also understand that, for our education partners, it’s important to develop strong relationships with quality service providers. It’s about trust, quality and the confidence that only years of global expertise can bring. Together, we provide students with a home and a community. We give more to our residents, including exclusive programs and opportunities that you won’t find anywhere else. This is the student experience with CLV.

Go Explore Travelling abroad, sampling different cultures and enjoying new experiences are some of the things we’re passionate about as a global organisation. It just wouldn’t be right if we didn’t help our residents do the same. Go Explore is a CLV resident’s key to travel. From Philadelphia to London to Sydney, current residents can discover new countries with access to two weeks free accommodation per year at participating villages around the globe (subject to availability). Go Explore accommodation is not available for CLV residents in Australia to use at other participating villages in Australia.

Corporate Social Responsibility We believe in giving back to our see ourselves as more than accommodation providers. Supporting charities, encouraging community. As a business dedicated to supporting students and young adults, we sustainable practices and creating a safe, supportive environment for residents, visitors and staff are important aspects of what we do.
