Accommodation 2014 Campaign Hero Large

Homestay is where an international student lives with an Australian family. As a homestay student you will be provided with your own bedroom, meals, and a quiet place to study. Clothes washing and other services may also be provided. Not only will your host family take you into their home, they will also help you fit into your new life in Australia, and help you with any questions you have relating to local customs and culture.

Although Homestay is no longer provided by the university, here are some contact details for homestay providers in Australia. Please contact them directly for further information and to apply or make bookings:
