It is important to organise your accommodation in Australia before you leave your home country.

Being happy and comfortable with where you live, not to mention being able to afford the rent, can greatly affect your study experience. Some institutions will offer on-campus accommodation for international students, and others will require you to find your own accommodation.

When researching your accommodation choices, you may wish to consider:

  • How close is it to the institution?
  • What public transport links are there?
  • How close is it to shops and services?
  • How big is your room?
  • How many people are sharing your bathroom/kitchen?
  • How much is the rent and bills?

Below are some of the main types of accommodation available to students (all amounts shown in AUS$):
