Road to Residency

If you were unable to secure accommodation at a residential college for semester one in 2019, then our non-residential program may suit you.

This option will allow you access to the benefits of College life, whilst living off-campus. The program is available to those who missed out on securing a full place in semester one, but are planning to move into residence in semester two. This year, approximately 60 new rooms will become available to non-residential students in semester two, upon the completion of our redevelopment project.

For additional information: Phone: +61 3 9347 3533 or complete our online enquiry form.
