Student Accomodation Options in Australia
Your accommodation needs will largely depend on your lifestyle and budget.
The options are: on-campus, school boarding houses, home stay, backpacker hostels and rented accommodation.
Hostels and Guest Houses often require students to share common facilities. The same with boarding houses where students may be supervised.
Home Stays are also very popular with international students because they allow you to soak in the local way of living plus the local hospitality.
Most international students prefer to rent accommodation as this is cheaper and enables them to save.
