Despite having a population of only 23 million, Australia is among the top 3 countries students love to go for further study. World-renowned education standards, unique landscape, wide-open spaces, and personality of the locals are some of the common things that attract students to study there.

Finding Australia suitable for your education pursuit, if you are planning to go there, you will have to find an accommodation to live in.

Though there is no dearth of accommodation options in the country, the problem of plenty may bother you a bit. Here, in this blog we are going to discuss accommodation options you may find suitable to stay:

On Campus

There is a plethora of universities which provide comfortable and furnished living spaces on campuses or nearby. These kinds of places can be a great option to live in, as they will minimise the travel. For this, you need to contact your institution directly.

Short-term accommodation

When you reach Australia, you might consider a short-term accommodation. These types of accommodations include hostels and affordable hotels. You may seek help from your institution's international support staff, as many institutions in the country arrange temporary housing for their foreign students.


This is also an interesting option you may find affordable as well as convenient. With this option, you will stay with a family in their home. Families in Australian offering homestay are closely scrutinised and screened to ensure that they provide a suitable living environment for students.
