Student Apartments 

Student apartments are a fantastic choice if you’re looking for convenience, affordability and the chance to share your experience with students from all over the world. Everything you need is in one place and you can move in straight away. 

Why choose a Student Apartment? 

  • It’s easy to make friends and socialise
  • Support staff are available if need help or are unsure about anything
  • Apartments are usually close to campus, so you spend less time travelling
  • You live in a safe, secure environment. 


A Homestay is perfect if you want to stay with a local family and experience the Australian culture and lifestyle. Australians are easy-going, friendly people and will make you welcome in their home. You’ll stay in a comfortable room of your own and share meals at home with your new family. Your host can also give you tips on interesting places to explore and how to get there. 

Why choose a Homestay?

  • It’s a good way to improve your English (and maybe learn some Aussie slang)
  • You’ll make new friends and discover what Australians are really like!
  • Living in a family can help you feel less homesick
  • You have someone to guide and support you as you settle in. 

We’ve done the hard work for you by putting together an awesome range of accommodation options to fit your needs and budget. All our partners are chosen for their reputation as trusted accommodation providers for students.
