We will strive to make it feel like a home away from home, where both students & parents will have peace of mind. We will look after your needs in a friendly, supportive and reliable way.

Swuite and its occupants acknowledge and respect the rights of adjoining residents and businesses to a quiet life and will work to ensure that these rights are not compromised by their actions. We operate a quiet hours policy between 11pm and 7:30am each night.
