Situated in Suva, the capital city of Fiji, the University of the South Pacific (USP) is a beacon of academic excellence. With its main campus, Laucala Campus, just a 10-minute bus ride from the bustling downtown, USP offers the best of both worlds—academic rigor and urban excitement.
Founded in the 1800s, Suva has evolved from a small trading post to become Fiji's political and commercial epicenter. Its rich history is a tapestry of indigenous Fijian culture and influences from European colonizers and Indian indentured laborers.
The Waqavuka Flats, is the name of the university's own homes on campus in Fiji. The home is furnished for private bed with shared facilities. The homes are equipped with air conditioning for the tropical weather and have 24/7 security.

I was looking for a freemover stay abroad through Uniclub and I got some of the best service I have experienced. They took care of all the practicalities, and removed almost all the hassle of work it can be to apply for an exchange stay.
Had fantastic service and help throughout the process. Would definitely recommend
I am going to Australia for a semester, and before finding Uniclub the whole application seemed impossible. These guys are simply the best. They have the right answer for literally every question that you have. They are helpful, quick, with excellent service
Uniclub and Deni Isic, get my absolute warmest recommendation! I had a dream of coming to Japan that seemed distant and unmanageable, but Deni and the rest of Uniclub have helped me through the whole process.
I have just returned from my exchange stay in Ireland, which would not have been possible if it were not for Uniclub. If you are looking for an exchange as a freemover, then I can not recommend UniClub enough!
