Co-living is short for community living, which is a sustainable and social way of life that centres the community. At UKO, this means our residents have access to clean and modern communal spaces where they can unwind in the company of others. No matter whether you want to organise a barbeque in the courtyard, read a book in the communal lounge or get some work done in our coworking areas – anything goes in our communal spaces.
What life at UKO looks like
This depends on which UKO community you call home! Each UKO community is inspired by its unique surroundings. Think heritage Paddington terraces, trendy Newtown apartments, spacious Marrickville balconies and converted Pyrmont warehouses.
At UKO, we encourage engagement with both your fellow residents and the wider community. Our hosts are always on the lookout for new local hotspots. With many coffee connoisseurs and art lovers amongst us, you can always be sure that you’re privy to the best insider recommendations on local gigs and cafes. Chances are, you’ll always find a fellow UKO resident who is keen to accompany you on your expeditions, no matter whether you’re headed to a gallery exhibition, the beach or a new bar you’ve been meaning to check out.
The team at UKO goes above and beyond to make sure that all of the boring responsibilities of independent living are covered. This means you don’t need to worry about utility and WiFi bills, inflexible contracts, or cleaning communal spaces. Laundry facilities are also available, with fresh linen available for purchase.
Our design includes spaces for you to hang out, get some work done, chat with other guests or invite your friends over for a dinner party. Consider our community spaces as extensions of your homelife – equally yours to enjoy in the same way that your private apartment or studio is yours.
If you’re in need of socialising or just after a change in scenery, our courtyards and lounge rooms are always open for our residents and their guests. You’ll often stumble across both organised events and impromptu dinners or drinks transpiring in our community spaces. Our hosts, who are always down for a chat, can also often be spotted in the courtyard- especially during the warmer months.
Each UKO location offers private studio apartments that feature various utilities. The average UKO studio averages at around 25sqm, with many studios including private balconies.
Some of our UKO locations also contain one, two and three bedroom apartments that are available either fully-furnished or unfurnished. Regardless of whether you choose a studio or apartment, you can be certain that your private space is modern and well-designed with premium fittings. Our private apartments and studios make luxury living accessible for all inner-city residents.
All UKOs hold free events on site that are designed to bring the community together and provide a space for friendships to grow. Join us for Saturday morning Yoga or get involved in our weekly get-togethers. Our team is dedicated to providing residents with memorable experiences to look forward to each week.
Some examples of UKO community activities include movie nights, trivia, community dinners, parties, wine tasting, silent discos, sport games, city-wide scavenger hunts and workshops on just about anything you can imagine. Activities don’t need to be formal either. Our residents are always organising their own events inside and outside UKO, whether it’s a night out on the town or the slightly more healthy option of a weekly gym session.

“There is where the future of the home is going. I really like the community and the interaction but also the sense of privacy when I want it”
Super clean, super new, super friendly, super convenient, super responsive – anything you can think of in UKO deserves the “super” prefix!

My partner Steven and I have really enjoyed our 3-month co-living experience at Stanmore. Finding out there were 3 generations living here who connected so seamlessly with each other was a wonderful surprise!
