Rental Accommodation

Students can rent an apartment or house on their own or share with other Australian or International students. Minimum lease is usually 6 months, but 12-month leases are more common. Please be aware of the obligations regarding length of stay in the lease or contract.

A contract is legally binding once it has been signed and default of the conditions will incur penalties which could include legal action and/or loss of bond and fines. Students also need to be aware that the additional costs of renting include Security Bond (usually between 4-6 weeks rent) and connection fees for electricity, gas and telephone.
