Apartments for students over 18

Student apartments are fully self-contained; each has its own kitchen and bathroom. Most are located within walking distance or a short tram ride from Trinity College and the University of Melbourne.

Apartments are generally leased under 12-month agreements and typically rent payments are due monthly. There are additional costs for electricity, gas, internet and telephone.

Meals: Student apartments are self-catering, which means that no meals are provided.

Internet: Each accommodation option offers a unique internet and phone package. Further information and rates canbe obtained directly from each provider.

NOTE: Students usually need to commit to staying in their accommodation choice for at least 6 or 12 months under a lease agreement or contract. If a student vacates before the end of the lease/contract period, he/she may still be required to continue paying the rent for the duration of the original lease/contract.

As per the Residential Tenancies Act 1997 (VIC), penalties apply to break a lease/contract. These penalties should be discussed with the accommodation provider prior to accepting or signing a new lease/contract.

Private Rentals

The option of private rental accommodation provides students with greater independence and also the responsibility of cooking. Some choose to share a house or flat with other Foundation Studies students. It is advisable that students ensure they can live comfortably with the others and agree on house rules.

Private rental arrangements are not an option for students under the age of 18.

This type of accommodation is generally unfurnished, and students need to allow some time before their course starts to find suitable accommodation and set themselves up, ensuring they have funds to purchase furniture and equipment.

Students may require temporary accommodation when they first arrive in Melbourne while they are looking for a suitable place. The Trinity College Foundation Studies (TCFS) Accommodation Office can assist with arranging temporary accommodation.

Australian real estate agents generally require one month’s rent in advance plus a refundable security deposit (bond), typicallyequivalent to a month’s rent.

Each student is responsible for their agreed share of the rent for the entire period of their lease, which is normally 12 months. If they vacate before the end of the lease period, they may still need to continue paying the rent for the duration of the original contract. The costs of electricity, gas and telephone are additional.

For further information regarding renting and your rights and responsibilities, please refer to the Tenants Union of Victoria:
