You can also pay via EFTPOS at reception, bank transfer, or through our secure payment portal, Novatti.

How does my mail get to me?

We accept letters and packages on your behalf.  For letters, we will not advise residents that they have received a letter due to the large volume that we receive on any given day, however we will periodically advise residents when their letterbox is full. If you are expecting a letter, please feel free to call past reception and check during office hours, alternatively you can call or email us and our reception staff will be happy to assist. For packages, reception staff will email you when we receive a package for you to pick up.

What do I need to buy before I can move in?

When you arrive, your room will be already furnished with a bed, mattress, desk and chair. You will need to provide your own kitchenware (pots, pans, crockery and cutlery), bed linen (sheets, pillow, doona, blankets), towels, washing powder, laundry basket, clothing, clothes hangers and personal toiletries. For residents going into multi-share apartments, we recommend waiting to buy items like kettles, toasters and other cooking items until after you arrive – you may find that one of your room mates already has one and is more than willing to share.

3-4 Bedroom Multi-Share Apartments (Standard) – Long-single 

3 Bedroom (Accessible), Studio Standard and Studio Accessible – King Single 

Studio Large – Double 

Studio Extra Large - Queen

How close is the nearest supermarket?

Other side of campus and just across Plenty Road. It features a Coles, multiple locations to dine out and a factory outlet (DFO) for clothing, bedroom and bathroom essentials.

If I really want to move apartments/rooms after I move in - is that possible?

You can move into a different apartment/room after you move in, however you will be subject to the $100 room move fee.
You will need to contact us so we can determine if there is any availability for you to move.

Can I move out at any time?

If you wish to terminate your agreement early, you will need to notify us 28 days in advance of your intended departure date, continue to pay your fees during this notice period, pay a departure cleaning fee of $130 and an early termination fee equivalent to four (4) weeks of residence fees.
You will also be required to find a replacement to take over your agreement.

Is there extra storage outside my apartment?

We do have limited storage available for bulky items such as suitcases and boxes, however it is on a first come, first served basis.
If you require items to be stored and there is no storage available, you will need to contact a local storage service provider.

How do I connect the internet/phone?

There is no phone in the room. The internet is provided by the accommodation, students can log in to the accommodation network using their student log-in credentials.
Non-accommodated students will be issued with log-in credentials for the duration of their stay, or they can use the eduroam network (if their institution has access to it).

Is wireless internet available?

Yes, we have unlimited Wi-Fi at this property and wireless internet through the building.

What is a security deposit?

A security deposit is similar to a bond and is a payment that acts as security against the resident not meeting the terms of their residence agreement.
The security deposit is returned to the resident at the end of their agreement, provided they have left the apartment in the condition that it was in when they entered (minus fair wear and tear) and there are no outstanding fees on their account.

How much is the security deposit?

The security deposit is equivalent to four weeks of residence fees.

What is a Condition Report?

Upon arrival you will be given a ‘Condition Report’, which is a record of the general condition of the property, including fittings and fixtures. You will be given this report when you check-in and collect your keys.
You must return the report, along with any notes and/or photos, to the accommodation within three (3) business days of moving in and you should keep a copy of the ‘Condition Report’ until the end of the agreement.
The ‘Condition Report’ is a very important document, as it can be used as evidence if there is a dispute about who should pay for cleaning, damage, or replacement of missing items at the end of the agreement.

I am vacating, can I use the Bond for my last month's rent?

Your security deposit and residence fees are separate payments. You are required to pay rent in the specified way up to and including the date of your departure.

What happens when I vacate?

You need to leave your apartment clean and tidy in the same condition as when you arrived, ensure all personal items have been removed and report any damage that may have been caused during your agreement.
The accommodation will conduct a departure inspection to ensure that you have fully vacated the apartment before we check you out.
You will also need to complete an End of Residency Form, so that we can refund your security deposit, pay a departure cleaning fee of $130 and return your keycard. We aim to have security deposits refunded within 20 business days.
