Student Life on Sunshine Coast or Wollongong?

Hey everyone,

I'm a Canadian, 24 female moving to Australia in under six months for university. I've already been accepted into the Sunshine Coast University in Sippy Downs, but am looking elsewhere just in case.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what university life is like on the Sunshine Coast (and I guess Sippy Downs area?), as well as Wollongong.

Or, if you have any suggestions for me to look elsewhere, I would really appreciate it!

Price/cost of living is the biggest factor - however, other factors include a mild/warm climate, public transportation, ability to find work (like in retail, hospitality, typical student jobs basically), decent nightlife, decent culture, decent beach life. I'm the kind of girl who loves a bit of everything in her city!

HI
At the risk of upsetting people from Wollongong , there is really no competition, the Sunshine Coast wind on all accounts.
My daughter attended university there, and used public transport exclusively and there is a pretty active student life around SCU.
Also with a big tourist industry, finding work in hospitality should be a lot easier.
As far as weather goes if you want the same as Canada ,without the snow, go to Wollongong, if you like sunshine and the beach go to SCU

I must totally agree here! I had friends in the Sunshine Coast, and they all say that the university and everything around it is pretty much awesome. It even made me a little envious, because my university was quite boring compared to theirs.
