Off Campus Accommodation
The Western Sydney area has a range of affordable apartments and share-house options near our campuses. Real estate agents generally manage apartments while individuals or students, manage shared accommodation.
Living off campus is suitable for students looking for a more independent lifestyle and there are many options available to you that are still close to your campus. Shared accommodation is a fun way to meet people, particularly in a new city and share living expenses.
If you need accommodation support or advice, contact the University’s Accommodation Support Officer via WesternNow or call 1300 668 370 (option 4 then option 1).

Homestay accommodation provides international students with the opportunity to live and interact with an Australian host family. There are options for short-term and long-term contracts and the minimum stay is generally four weeks. Accommodation includes a single or shared room in a private home and usually ‘full board’ which means that most meals are provided.
