Booking Details

Cancellation Policy prior to lease start date

In order to reserve a room at Scape, customers must pay a non-refundable, holding deposit equivalent to one weeks rent when booking a room online through the Scape website, in person at a Scape residence or making a booking over the phone.

Customers will be required to sign a residential agreement prior to arrival and at this point, the holding deposit will go towards the first payment of rent.

If a customer requests to cancel or does not sign the residential agreement within the required timeframe specified by Scape, the booking may be cancelled and all fees paid will be refunded to the customer less the 1 week holding deposit. 

All cancellation requests must be in writing and sent via email to bookings.au@scape.com

All refunds will be made via the same method in which they were paid and to the same bank account or credit or debit card used. In order to arrange a refund, the customer may be required to complete a refund form.

Once the residential agreement is signed, the terms and conditions of the residential agreement will then apply.

If a student does not get accepted into their educational institution or does not have a valid visa approval, the holding deposit can be returned to the student.

Payment Details

Rent Payment:

An initial holding fee of one week's rent is due when you make a booking to secure your room at Scape. This payment is non-refundable and becomes a part of your rent when you check in. There are 3 options to pick from to pay your rent:

  • Fortnightly by setting up direct debit prior or upon check in.
  • All upfront and receive a 4% saving by paying the full rent in advance (please note, 4% saving only applies for minimum 50 week bookings and provided the lease is not broken at any time).

Payment Mode:

  • Debit cards (international debit cards will incur a 1.25% surcharge)
  • Mastercard and Visa (1.25% surcharge will be incurred)
  • Union Pay (1.9% surcharge will be incurred)
  • Flywire (enabling students to pay via many international methods or local bank transfer)
  • Bank transfer


Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to pay a bond?

Yes you do. The bond is equivalent to 4 weeks' rent and must be paid by the tenancy start date. We will lodge it with the appropriate state based authority and you will then receive an email confirmation with your bond lodgment number once lodged.

What does my bond cover and when will I get it back?

The bond is registered with the appropriate state based authority and covers any damage you may cause to your room; this excludes normal wear and tear. It is refundable at the end of your stay with us as long as there are no damages, your room is left clean and there is no outstanding rent. You will receive an email when your bond is ready to be returned. Release of your bond from the state based authority will either be transferred into an Australian bank account which is the preferred method, or you can arrange for a cheque to be sent to you.

I'm not a student. Can I book with you?

Unfortunately not, our properties are available to students only. 

Do I need a guarantor to book?

No you dont need a guarantor to book.

How much do I have to pay to book?

To secure a room at Scape, you just need to pay a non-refundable holding deposit (equivalent to one week's rent), which will become your first week's rent upon check in. We offer a variety of payment options for rental payments and we will contact you closer to your tenancy start date regarding payment of bond and any other rent due. 

Can I move in later than my start date?

Yes, you can move in on the day your contract starts or any day after, just contact our team to let us know your planned arrival date and time.

Can I live near my friend?

We will always do our best but this will depend on availability. We do have a range of shared apartments with two, five and eight bedrooms, which are a great option for friends who would like to share their Scape experience, subject to availability. Please contact the Scape team directly to talk through different options.

Can I swap my room once booked?

We have limited availability but if you would like to request a room move, please contact the Scape team directly to talk through different options and we will always do our best to accommodate.

What size is the bed?

Double beds are provided in all rooms except for Twins where you are provided with a King Single.

Is Scape a preferred supplier for any institutions for students under 18?

Yes. Currently we are a preferred supplier to accommodate students aged 16 or 17 upon check in for the below institutions.  Monash College University of Melbourne UNSW Global

Do I need to bring any documentation for check in?

Yes, when you arrive and check in you will be asked to provide photo ID. This can be a driving licence, passport or any form of photo ID that shows your full name and date of birth. You also need to provide proof of student status and this can be uploaded on myScape prior to arrival.
