Claremount Beach House

ICMS and Aspire Institute students will find this off-campus accommodation option provides female students with the perfect balance of independence while still enjoying all the benefits of a college-managed residence. It’s a great way to enjoy student life while also making a step into life beyond lectures.

Claremount Beach House, 68-70 Pittwater Road Manly, is a 24-bed female-only residence located in the bustling heart of Manly village and a short walk from the beach, bus and ferry. Designed and renovated by ICMS as safe, accessible and exceptional off-campus student accommodation, the residence offers a variety of options for students from shared to single rooms.

The residence is comprised of two interconnected two-storey, semi-attached terraces which previously operated a popular Backpackers Hostel. It is located in one of the best areas of Manly, close to the world famous Manly beach, transport, ATMs, supermarkets, banks, cafes, restaurants and nightlife. Students will be able to play games or chill in one of four courtyards. Meals are self-catered in a fully-functional shared kitchen and students take care of their own laundry with washers and dryers provided. The open plan dining areas and lounges are ideal for making lasting friendships with students from all over the world. Safety and security is a priority with restricted access, a manager in residence, and CCTV. The facility is non-smoking.
