You can either make your own arrangements for accommodation or we will put you in contact with our Homestay Provider company to arrange Homestay accommodation for you. Homestay means to live with a local person/family. There are many people with a spare room that wish to host overseas students like you.
The weekly fee is approximately AUD$300 and includes your room and may also include meals and laundry.
This is often a great way to get started and settle in to your life in Melbourne. Some students choose to stay with this arrangement long term however most use it as a “starting” option and then make their own plans, like renting a house and sharing with fellow students.
If you would like to book in for Homestay, please let us know. You can also check out the cost of rental and share accommodation in Melbourne by visiting:
As we are located in the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, we recommend that you live in this area. Some suburbs that are close to us are: Mentone, Cheltenham, Parkdale, Mordialloc, Aspendale, Hyatt, Beaumaris, Moorabbin and Dingley.These suburbs are all 25-30 minutes drive from the city center. If you want to live nearer to the Melbourne city center, again we recommend the south eastern side of the city. But remember, it may be a little more expensive to live closer to the city center area.
