Advertise your accommodation
The University of Sydney has a free-to-advertise database that lists rental, share and full-board accommodation offered by private providers, and vacancies on-campus. This database is accessible to all currently enrolled students at the University of Sydney, and we encourage providers to advertise with us for accommodation available near any of the campuses.
Only currently enrolled students can access the accommodation database and view your listing. Out of your personal contact information, they only see the name listed under “Contact Person” (usually a first name), your residential street and suburb, the contact number you provided, and your email address if you wish for applicants to contact you via email.
If you have any enquiries from people claiming to have seen your advertisement on our database but are not students at the University of Sydney, please contact us immediately.
Bond and rental agreements
If you ask for a rental bond, you are required, by law, to lodge the money with NSW Fair Trading.
For information about your legal rights and responsibilities as a provider of accommodation, please refer to the NSW Fair Trading – Being a Landlord website.
Please also refer to our terms and conditions for providers about our policy on advertising your accommodation.
While the University has systems in place to ensure the security of our database, it is important to know about current accommodation scams and where to go for help.
You should never give or receive money from a potential tenant whom you have not met in person.
For more information about scams, how to avoid them and to report a scam, see NSW Fair Trading Consumers website.
