Once you have received confirmation of where you will be studying, you should look for accommodation that suits your needs and budget. Student accommodation is usually highly sought after and requires prior planning. Some of the things to keep in mind when searching for accommodation

  • Costs will vary depending on your chosen state, city, and type of accommodation.

  • Read your rental agreement carefully and always confirm the total cost and any other expenses you may be required to pay, such as a bond and utility fees and ensure they are included in your agreement.

  • Check the distance of your accommodation from your campus and ensure that it is easily accessible by public transport, such as bus or train.

  • Find out what shopping centres, hospitals and emergency service facilities, and other amenities are near your chosen accommodation.


Types of accommodation available:

  1. Homestay - Homestay accommodation gives international students the option of living with an Australian family in their home.

  2. University accommodation - Accommodation options at residential colleges, halls of residences and apartments vary between universities. We recommend you contact your institution to find out what accommodation options they offer and compare the costs against organising your own accommodation.

  3. Residential Colleges - Accommodation and facilities are available for the exclusive use of students demonstrating priorities around quality pastoral programs, academic support, sporting, cultural and leadership development opportunities.

  4. Private rental - You may choose to rent a property by yourself or with  housemate(s) to share the cost of a rental property.
