Students

Is there on campus accommodation? How do I apply?

On campus accommodation is available at the Hawthorn campus.

You can find more information here, including application procedures and fees and charges. 

Though there is no on campus accommodation at Prahran many student choose to live at the Hawthorn Residences and travel to the campus. Travel time varies from 15 - 40 minutes depending on the what method you are using.

How do I find my way around?

Our site includes Google maps of the approximate location of each listing. Google Maps can help you find addresses and directions, as well as providing a street level view through Google Street View.

You can also pick up a street directory for around $40.00 at most stores, including newsagencies.

I contacted one of the providers and they told me the vacancy was gone. Why does it still say it's available on the website?

Sometimes providers can forget to let us know their vacancy is gone. Or maybe it has just been rented, and they haven't had a chance to tell us.

If you come across one of these offers, please let us know. That way we can contact the provider and take down the offer if it's no longer available.

This can be a big time saver for students that are going through the database as it stops them wasting time on unavailable properties.
