Student Housing & Accommodation in Australia

International students have a variety of high-quality accommodation options when it comes to finding a place to live while they study in Australia. Most universities and colleges in Australia can offer on-campus student housing, usually prioritizing first-year international students. There is also the option to rent either an apartment or a room in a residence hall with shared kitchen facilities.

A homestay with an Australian family can be another good accommodation option for students to become integrated into the local community right away and have a true Australian experience. Students may also live in shared housing or in a hostel. Students who are not interested in living on-campus can often find off-campus housing opportunities on local noticeboards or in newspapers. Off-campus housing does not always include furniture and often requires payment of a security bond equal to one months’ rent.

Affordable housing can be difficult to find in Australia, so it is best to contact your school about accommodation options as soon as you know you’ve been accepted. It is highly recommended for students to arrange temporary accommodation for a few nights before they arrive in Australia. This allows them some time to explore various accommodation options and find what best suits them.

They also have formal contractual relationships with every landlord on their site for an added layer of security for you!
