Stu­dent heads to Cam­pus Perth

South Western Times - - News - Emily Ace

Manea Col­lege grad­u­ate Nina Raper will be part of the first in­take of stu­dents at Cam­pus Perth, a new of­fer­ing for stu­dents re­quir­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion while study­ing in Perth set to open on Jan­uary 7.

It will be­come the first off-cam­pus hub to open in the metro area, lo­cated on Stir­ling Street in the heart of North­bridge.

The hub is de­signed to be an af­ford­able and all-in­clu­sive liv­ing op­tion with com­mu­nal ar­eas, a cowork­ing space, re­lax­ation lounge, com­mu­nal kitchen, rooftop ter­race and fit­ness stu­dio.

Miss Raper will be liv­ing out of home for the first time next year, as she moves to Perth with hopes of study­ing a ma­jor in vis­ual art and a mi­nor in art history at Edith Cowan Univer­sity.

The op­por­tu­nity to move in came after the young artist en­tered the Ci­nes­naps Short Film Com­pe­ti­tion and was of­fered an ac­com­mo­da­tion prize by Cam­pus Perth after be­com­ing a fi­nal­ist.

“I am so grate­ful and re­ally ex­cited to move in,” she said.

She said the move from the South West to the city was a big tran­si­tion, made eas­ier be­cause a close friend was also mov­ing to the hub.

Cam­pus Perth ap­pealed to Nina’s mother An­d­rina Her­mann due to the fo­cus on stu­dent well­be­ing, ameni­ties and cen­tral lo­ca­tion.

“Cam­pus Perth is good place for Nina to go in her first in­stance of liv­ing away from home,” Ms Her­mann said. “It will give her an op­por­tu­nity to find her feet away from home in a safe en­vi­ron­ment.”

Cam­pus Perth mar­ket­ing man­ager Jas­mine Kemp said a fo­cus on stu­dent wel­fare was vi­tal in the de­vel­op­ment of cam­pus ameni­ties.

“Cam­pus Perth’s events calendar will fea­ture ac­tiv­i­ties to al­low res­i­dents to get to know each other and the Perth sur­rounds, given many will be from out of town,” she said.

Cam­pus Perth gen­eral man­ager Bram New­bold said the co-liv­ing would be bol­stered by a strong re­tail and com­mer­cial of­fer­ing on the ground floor, fea­tur­ing a host of prime food and bev­er­age op­tions along­side a gro­cery store.

“We’re com­mit­ted to cre­at­ing a vi­brant en­vi­ron­ment and adding to the es­tab­lished food and cul­tural scene in North­bridge,” Mr New­bond said. “In­ter­est in Cam­pus Perth has been strong with both do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional stu­dents and is in­creas­ing as Year 12 stu­dents re­ceive univer­sity of­fers.”
