Short-term housing

If you are moving from interstate or overseas, ensure you have arranged for short-term housing so you have place to stay when you arrive. This is an important if you are intending on looking for long-term accommodation whilst in Sydney.

There are several options available for short-term stay such as backpackers hostels, hotels or serviced apartments. Some of the on-campus colleges also offer short-term stays during the winter and summer vacations. We have listed a few options for you to have a look at – remember, book your short-term accommodation in advance as it will be popular at the start of semester.
