Accommodation Assistance

Types of Accommodation

AITT will gladly assist in finding suitable accommodation.  It cannot however, enter into agreements with Real Estate Agents or householders on your behalf.

Temporary Accommodation on Arrival
If required, temporary accommodation will be arranged for your arrival usually for a period of one week. This would be hotel style accommodation at $80 to $120 AUD per night.

Home Stay
Home stay involves the student living with an Australian family.  The cost generally includes two meals (breakfast and dinner) during the week and three meals on weekends.  Rooms may be single or shared and cost will vary accordingly.  Cost $150 to $200 AUD per week.

Private or Church Owned Boarding Hostels
These hotels are available for both tertiary and non-tertiary students.  Facilities include kitchen and share bathroom with self-catering to be expected.  For newcomers to the country, living in a hostel is a good way to meet other students in a comfortable study environment.  Cost $80 to $150 AUD per week.

Share Accommodation
Advertisements on student notice boards and in sections of the local newspapers will appear for one or more people to share a house or flat, often where a lease has already been taken out.  This often suits students once they have been in the country for a while and are comfortable with their new country’s living arrangements.  Cost $80 to $150 AUD per week.

Rental Accommodation
As with share accommodation, units, flats, single bed-sitters and even houses, are available through Real Estate Agents.  These are normally unfurnished.  One month’s rent in advance may be charged plus a bond (or security deposit) prior to signing a lease agreement.  Cost $150 to $300 AUD per week.
