Disclaimer:  This list is intended to provide information on temporary accommodation options for visitors.  
All arrangements are strictly between you and the providers.

Student Housing is a resource and advice service for current and soon to be enrolled students with regard to their accommodation options, tenancy law and emergency housing situations. 


You are most welcome to use our website as a resource for information about renting in Melbourne. 

STUDENT HOUSING


Some of the larger Student Apartment providers (such as those listed on our website) may require enrollment at an Australian university in order to live there.  They may not accept couples and/or be suitable for families. You should enquire with each about their particular terms and conditions.

MANAGED STUDENT APARTMENTS 


Student Housing doesn’t manage the accommodation provided by Residential Colleges. Some of them have accommodation for visiting academics, as well as casual short-term accommodation at particular times of the year.  Please visit their website for additional information, contacts and bookings.

RESIDENTIAL COLLEGES


Depending on your budget, one the most popular choices for visiting scholars and students is Graduate House. It is walking distance to our Parkville campus, the Royal Melbourne and Children’s Hospitals, public transport, Lygon Street and the CBD. Facilities include a dining room, library, study/common room, bistro and club lounge.

GRADUATE HOUSE


We have a list of temporary accommodation providers close to the University on our website. There are various options and price ranges from backpackers to motels. You should contact these providers directly with any enquiries or to make a booking.

RENTAL  AGREEMENTS IN MELBOURNE


Rental agreements in Melbourne are usually a minimum of 12 months and sometimes 6 months.   There can be financial implications should you wish to ‘break your lease’ and leave earlier.  It is important to understand your rights, obligations and responsibilities as a tenant under the Residential Tenancies Act 1997 (RTA).
