Meals Australia: USYD students share common kitchens and cook meals for themselves. While it may be an initial adjustment, cooking can become a bonding experience for students. Our site staff are available to give students advice on local grocery stores and cooking tips. There are also many student-friendly food options on campus and within walking distance of the accommodation.
