Australia welcomes thousands of international students every year, and these students can choose from several different options when deciding where to live, there are plenty of alternatives if you have the resources to know where to look. Here, we’ll run through the options to avoid any confusion prior to your arrival.
Nearly all major universities and colleges offer halls of residence, mainly catering to international students. Whilst this option will likely be more expensive than off-campus living (costing around AU$80-250 (~US$60-185) per week), students are provided with a wide range of services including: meals, cleaning, sporting and laundry facilities, and fully-furnished rooms.
Off-campus rental property
With the majority of students in Australia living off campus, this is a common option which will give you more options and freedom. Although this might be an intimidating choice it is by far the most widespread option for both international and local students. Depending on the area and city, you will be paying around AU$80-200 (~US$60-150) per week, usually unfurnished.
Homestay with an Aussie family
The process of a homestay involves an international student living with an Australian family in their household for the duration of their studies. This option allows you to fully integrate into the Aussie lifestyle, while meals usually being provided in the average weekly cost of AU$110-270 (~US$80-200).
Get free accommodation as an au pair
If you have child-care experience, working as an au pair(also known as a nanny) may be a good option for you. With many families looking for child care services in return for accommodation and food, this may work out for you if the hours coincide with your class schedule.

Best thing about Vivek Gupta Sir is his selfless counselling. As I am already a BSC/ MSC, he suggested me to go to Philippines as I was able to get straight admission into MD and this finishes my entire course in 4 years flat. In any other country, it would have taken by 5.5-6 years. Ms Kanimojhi in Chennai office of GKWorks was equally supportive in coordination regarding documents, departure and all other formalities.
We live 100 Km’s away from Varanasi. The internet connection in our town is very weak and my parents are not that educated. For us, understanding the word RTGS was also very difficult. Thanks to Amit Pandey Sir, who is Gkworks Varanasi incharge, he helped us to do all small things. Going with us to get forex to helping us doing RTGS for fee payment, he was always there with us. He only helped us to apply for passport online and went with us to passport office Varanasi. Such support at ground level was provided by GKworks team both in Varanasi and Delhi.
My parents were not very comfortable to send me abroad especially my mother as I am the only son of my parents. I really wanted to become a doctor and thus approached Hemant Mishra Sir, director of Bareilly branch of GKWorks. He went out of his way to convince my mother. He would have come 5 times to my home, invited us to his office and home 10 times before my mother was finally convinced. It is only due to Hemant Sir in Bareilly that I am pursuing my course today. I wish GKworks and especially Bareilly branch all the very best to help many more students for their life dreams.
