Murdoch University is a public university in Perth, Western Australia, with campuses also in Singapore and Dubai. Its name is taken from Sir Walter Murdoch (1874–1970), the Founding Professor of English and former Chancellor of the University of Western Australia.

Murdoch is a verdant university and a member of the Innovative Research Universities.

The university has three campuses located in Western Australia: the main South Street Campus that boasts a range of facilities, including a vet hospital, a farm, an engineering pilot plant, a chiropractic clinic, a Media Arts centre and more; its Rockingham Campus, based on the state’s southern coast; and the Peel Campus, which houses the school of Nursing and Midwifery.

The university also has campuses in Dubai and Singapore, which enables Murdoch’s students – numbering around 22,000 in Perth (which includes 2,000 international students from 100 countries) – to take advantage of study abroad opportunities. There are approximately 8,000 students enrolled offshore.

When Murdoch was founded in 1975, it  had 510 students and were the acknowledged choice of ‘free-thinkers’. Today, it is  a lot bigger - and it’s the direct result of that same freethinking choice made by more than 22,000 current students.

Its nine schools comprise Arts, Engineering and Information Technology, Education, the Health Professions, Law, Management and Governance, Psychology and Exercise Science, as well as the Sir Walter Murdoch School of Public Policy and International Affairs, and the School of Veterinary and Life Sciences.

The university adopts a flexible approach to learning, to help students juggle their academic work around lifestyle commitments. It encourages a philosophy of ‘free thinking’ and work-related experience alongside academic study.

It also prides itself on being one of the country’s leading research institutions with a growing number of industry partnerships to its name.

The university’s South Street campus is also home to an art collection of national significance. Celebrating the creativity and diversity of Australian art, the collection comprises work by internationally recognised artists, including contemporary Western Australian and Australian artists, and traditional and contemporary Indigenous artists.

Murdoch graduates are sought after by business and industry as a result of the high-quality teaching, leading-edge research and relevant real-world learning, which combine to shape the holistic Murdoch student experience and create distinctive competitive advantage.

Where to live

If you won’t be living at home with your family while you study at Murdoch, you’ll need to think about where you’ll live and how much it will cost. There are several different types of accommodation available, both on campus and in the surrounding suburbs.

On-campus accommodation

Murdoch University offers on-campus accommodation at Murdoch University Village. Accommodation at the Village fills quickly and the University recommends that applications be submitted as soon as possible. Applications should be submitted online through the web site.

Murdoch University Village Murdoch University Village is located in lush native bushland surrounds on the western end of the South Street campus.

 The Village offers a diverse range of one- to eight-bedroom apartments for over 800 students, including a choice of modern one-, two- and five-bedroom apartments opened in 2009.

 All apartments are fully furnished and self catered, featuring kitchens, lounge areas, bathrooms and bedrooms (with the option of ensuite, single, double and twin share).

 Residents can access public transport and travel to and from the Perth CBD with ease via bus service to purchase any linen or homewares they may need during their stay.

 A range of accessible accommodation options is available for students with disabilities.

On-site facilities have been designed to enhance the student lifestyle and include a swimming pool, e-library, recreation room, student lounge, television room, study centre and beach volleyball and basketball courts.

 An extensive event program offers activities to support social, academic and personal development, from movie nights to study groups and cooking classes. The Village has also implemented their award-winning V1 First Year Uni Program, designed to assist first-year students with settling in, making new friends and learning about the local area.

 If residents need help, a friendly Resident Assistant team is available to provide support, help students settle into the community and adjust to life in Australia. Resident Assistants, staff and/or security are on site 24 hours a day. Visit the web site for more details.

Off-campus accommodation

Accommodation arrangements vary from home stay with provision of meals, through to sharing a house or apartment. Students should ensure they have temporary accommodation arranged if they intend to source more permanent accommodation after arrival.

If you prefer to live away from campus, costs will vary depending on whether you choose an apartment or a house, and whether you decide to share rent by living with other students or go it alone.

The Guild provides an off-campus accommodation database of rooms and properties advertised for students, and available rental properties in Perth are advertised with REIWA. Off-campus housing is available through an Off-Campus Housing Referral Service. The Murdoch University Village web site includes links to other sites where private rental and share accommodation are advertised.

Additional start-up costs are likely to be involved in renting a property, such as a rental bond of four weeks rent and a couple of weeks’ rent in advance. Utilities such as power and gas may not be included in your rent, which is something to bear in mind when considering accommodation options.

Quick Facts





Fees may vary from 28,000 AUD$ TO 36,000 AUD$ annually . It depends on your course.


As a general guide, if you’re going to live out of home while you study, you’ll probably want to budget around A$500 per week for your living expenses in Perth. This figure does not include your course fees, the cost of running a vehicle, textbook costs or holiday travel costs. If you’re an international student, it’s a good idea to arrive in Australia with easy access to approximately $500 to pay for miscellaneous expenses associated with settling in Perth. If you have not pre-paid for housing, or if you will be staying in accommodation which is unfurnished, you should bring more to pay for start-up costs such as a bond, advance rent and furniture.
