You can rent somewhere to live in agent-operated student accommodation, or organise your own by looking online. Rent is usually $150-300 each week. You could live alone or share accommodation with other people.
We recommend finding somewhere to live close to campus. There are usually lots of options either within walking distance or easily accessed by public transport.
International students can also live in homestays, where you will get a room and have the option of having your meals provided by the family you live with. Living in an Australian house is a great way to practice your English and learn about Australian culture.
Homestays cost between $250-280 dollars each week, depending on how many meals you want provided. This covers all your water, gas and electricity bills. Internet and phone contributions are extra. Halal or vegetarian food costs an extra $30 per week.
You must stay in a homestay for at least 4 weeks, and arrive within 7 days of your course starting. You can negotiate to stay longer if you’d like.
