Accommodation at Melbourne

Welcome to your new home.

There is a range of student accommodation (you may know this as housing) available to you. Choices include University owned and partnered accommodation, known as University Accommodation, and traditional residential colleges.

  • Applications for University Accommodation are currently open.
  • Applications are also open for residential colleges and other select options - you can explore these further down the page.

Are you an international student? Be cautious of accommodation deals with lock-in contracts. If you apply to the University, you can secure a room now, but you will not be locked-in to a contract if you cannot travel to Australia.
