Welcome to Australia

Things are a little different down here

In Australia, universities provide little or no housing to students. This can make securing a room before you land in Australia somewhat difficult. In fact, Australian universities suggest that international students arrive two to three weeks early so they have enough time to find housing before classes start. It’s why so many students use Semester in Australia.

Semester in Australia allows you to go straight to your new home from the airport

Semester in Australia do not own the properties, we simply provide a housing service that past residents rave about. We search out and secure suitable student accommodation from a pool of independently owned apartments and houses in the areas surrounding your university’s campus.

All you need to do is select your favourite student accommodation and we’ll reserve your room for you.  There’s no need to:

  • Stay in expensive temporary accommodation
  • Worry about setting up the utilities or paying the bills
  • Buy expensive furnishings like a washing machine, fridge or cookware

Don't just take our word for it - here is a video made by some of our students who studied in Australia in 2018.  We love that they loved the housing so much, they made a video to share with others!  Take a look...

You focus on the adventure, we do the hard stuff

Let us take the hassle, time and uncertainty out of finding the perfect place to live in SydneyMelbourneBrisbane or the Gold Coast.
