How much will it cost?
The cost of temporary accommodation varies considerably. If you are happy to stay in a backpacker hostel, you might pay between $26 and $35 per night for a bed in a shared dormitory. It might cost between $90 and $200 per night to stay in an apartment. This charge may be for one or two persons, and the surcharge for a third person might be small. Most apartments have minimum stays of at least three nights and some offer discounts for stays of seven or more nights. Students starting their studies in Semester 1 will be arriving during the ‘high season’, so please be aware that many accommodation providers will be charging premium rates for their rooms.

If you are commencing study in Semester 1, you must book your temporary accommodation as soon as possible. If you are commencing study in Semester 2, try to book your temporary accommodation at least two weeks before you travel to Australia.
For how long should I book accommodation?
