Off-campus Accommodation

If you're looking to rent a room or a property, there's a range of options to choose from. Before looking, it helps to know what you can afford, keeping in mind you may need to pay bond as well as bills such as gas, electricity, water, internet and phone. You might also consider whether you require a furnished place, how close you'd like to be to campus and if you'll need to be close to public transport. If you’re thinking about renting a room, ask about your potential housemates to ensure you secure a suitable living and study environment. It's also important to read all documents carefully and to understand the terms and conditions involved when signing a tenancy agreement or lease.

 share housing – where you share a house or apartment with a number of other students – is the most common form of off campus accommodation

You may wish to organise your long-term off campus accommodation after you arrive in Australia, to ensure you are choosing a suitable living and study environment. Off-campus accommodation websites:
