Student Housing

Beginning university marks the beginning of a new era in your life and can also coincide with some other major changes. Many students move out of the family home and into some student digs (of varying hygiene standards), be it a rental, share house or one of the on-campus accommodation options offered.

The start of university may represent a city or state move, uprooting your entire life. This can be a fabulous experience, one of excitement and independence, but it can also be nerve-racking and daunting.

Here we provide you with some helpful pointers on what to look out for, what options are available and where to seek further information.
