 The university  offers  more than 1,000 places to stay in the  main campus. Curtin’s accommodation is a popular way to stay close to campus. Due to high demand, we recommend you apply for student housing as soon as you apply to study at Curtin. By living on campus, you'll enjoy comfortable and tidy single and shared accommodation, and have the opportunity to meet and interact with people from all over the world. You will also benefit from 24-hour security patrols and the convenience of having supermarkets, shops, restaurants, cafés and a post office only walking distance away.


 A range of accommodation options is available in the suburbs surrounding the main campus. You’ll benefit from close proximity to the city and shopping, with rental prices varying depending on the type and location of accommodation you choose. Curtin’s Housing Services Office keeps a register of people in established households who are looking to share with others. Off-campus accommodation allows greater independence and privacy, making it ideal for mature-aged students and those with families.


 Live with an Australian family, couple or single person and learn about life in Australia. Most students choose to stay with a homestay family when they first arrive in Perth. It’s a great way to improve your English and get to know your way around Perth. Your homestay family will provide you with meals on either a full-board or part-board basis depending on your choice. Homestay full-board offers three daily meals, 7 days a week. Homestay part-board offers two daily meals on weekdays and three daily meals on weekends.


 You can experience staying in an Australian home in your own room with the independence of arranging your own meals.


You can rent your own house or apartment to live in. If you take this option usually you will have your family with you or you want to live by yourself without sharing accommodation with others. If you want to rent your own accommodation, you will have to prepare your own meals.


For information about accommodation at other Curtin campuses, please contact the relevant campus directly.
