I will start my Phd at the University of Western Sydney in Penrith this September. I haven't been to Sydney before, so I need some advice where to live. It seems that Penrith is an hour away from Sydney CBD. I don't want to live that far from the city center, but I also don't want to spend 2 hours a day on the way between Penrith and Sydney CBD. Any suggestions?
I will also be looking for a room/studio in the last week of August. I would be happy, if anyone can suggest me a place to rent. Thanks.
