If you’d like to move closer to campus, you have several options available to you, including house sharing, homestay accommodation, renting, or short term accommodation.

Here are some helpful resources to get you started.


If you are new to Melbourne, homestay accommodation can be a good option. Homestay involves boarding with a local family, with most meals and expenses included in the cost. If you are interested in homestay, please visit https://www.homestay.com and get in touch with their Student Accommodation Services.

Helpful websites

These websites are a good resource for finding accommodation. Always be vigilant when inspecting accommodation and signing any contracts or agreements. For information about renting and your rights as a tenant, visit the Consumer Affairs Housing and Accommodation web page.

If you require crisis accommodation, contact Student Support on 1300 244 746 (option 4).
