University House, the hotel at the Australian National University offers quiet three and a half star accommodation facilities among parkland and gardens in the heart of the Canberra tourist region. Winner of the Sulman Award for architecture, the building was constructed in the best style of the 1950s and has maintained its historic quality, character and welcoming ambience for half a century.
In addition to its beautiful and tranquil surroundings, perhaps the most surprising aspect of University House for the visitor is its serene isolation and its proximity to Lake Burley Griffin. Yet with its 104 spacious rooms, Boffins Restaurant, offering contemporary Australian cuisine and the Fellows Bar and Cafe, this true oasis in the National Capital is only a short walk from the central business district, restaurants, Parliament House, Screen Sound Australia, Questacon, Law Courts, National Museum and the National Gallery.
Our friendly staff look forward to welcoming you to University House on your next visit to the Nation's Capital.
