About the Accommodation Database
As a student, the Accommodation Database is a useful resource to identify off-campus living options. Plenty of external advertisers use this database to make their homes available to students. The entries are verified by the staff in the Accommodation Services to ensure advertisements conform to the New South Wales Residential Tenancies Act.
Please be aware that staff do not physically view the properties, the information is taken at face value and the onus is on the student to view the propperty before entering into an agreement. If you think the property does not match up with what was advertised, please let us know and we will investigate.
The University of Sydney Accommodation Database is reserved for use by students who are enrolled at the University. External providers advertise in this database with the knowledge that it will solely be utilised by University of Sydney students.
The database is only available to currently enrolled students; if you have received your offer letter but have not enrolled, swing by Accommodation Services (located in Jane Foss Russell Building, Main Campus) for us to help you with your search. If you’re already enrolled, register now to access the database!
If you are coming from overseas, interstate or rural/regional Australia we recommend that you arrange temporary accommodation before arriving in Sydney. It will take time for you to arrange accommodation and you want to make sure you have interim accommodation in place before you arrive.
Using the database
There can be many properties advertised at any one time. We recommend that you use keywords to narrow your search, especially if you’re looking for something specific. The database has fields for particular keyword searches such as ‘Bedroom’ and ‘Property’; use these options to filter through the list of available accommodation.
Adding filters will narrow down the results that are displayed. Should you wish to widen your search, remove all the filters that you entered. This will display all available listings and you can peruse them individually.
The advertisements on the database are detailed – we recommend that you read through each advertisement thoroughly before making a decision.
