“Living in Lisa Bellear House has made the transition from living at home to being independent much smoother and most importantly, more fun! Having a community of such diverse backgrounds has really made me feel welcomed and accepted. With events happening almost every other day, the act of making friends and building my own circle was made that much easier. Combined with access to many different leisure spots & study areas in the building, a balanced working environment was achieved for me to smoothly transition between studies and socialising. Overall, Lisa Bellear House is definitely more than just an accommodation; it is a home and a community that I will always be grateful to have been a part of.”
