Living options for Foundation Studies

Trinity College has a range of approved accommodation options and works closely with accommodation providers to ensure students have a safe and secure environment to live in.

The Accommodation Office provides advice and information to students and their families on a range of accommodation options, to assist students to make the best possible accommodation choice.

The most popular accommodation options vary in style, standard and cost. 

Accommodation options vary for students under 18 and over 18 years of age. 


All U18 students are required to go directly to their pre arranged accommodation on arrival in Australia. The student and family are welcome to apply for an interim stay away from the accommodation. This can be done after arrival and check in. The family will need to visit the Welfare Office located at 200 Victoria St, Carlton.

They will need to bring the following items:

  • Parents passport & Visa
  • Confirmed hotel booking
  • Parents travel Itinerary and return air ticket.

Change of Accommodation 

It is important for an under 18 student to choose their accommodation options carefully.

A new process in 2016 has been put into place assisting students to stay in their chosen accommodation during the transitional stage of living in Melbourne. Students will need to wait 6 weeks after the course commencement date before an application will be processed (except under exceptional circumstances).
