The University's Accommodation Service is responsible for supporting students in finding an accommodation option that best suits their needs.

Accommodation is the largest variable cost - $90 is an average cost of shared private accommodation outside of the city centre, whereas $190 is for University-managed or rental accommodation often within the city centre.

Please note: that there can be very large set-up costs associated with private accommodation that are not applicable to University-managed accommodation.
