Fee reduction

Fee reduction procedures for resident accommodation, as outlined in paragraph 6.5 of the Rules of Residency, can apply in the following circumstances:

  • a 'room only' fee of AUD140 per week when residents are away from Residential Colleges for more than a week for authorised academic programs, illness or extenuating circumstances
  • a 5% discount applies where fees are paid annually in advance by the due date and the student remains in residence for the academic year
  • a 10% discount applies to a second sibling while both siblings are in residence. 

Resident Student Club (RSC) fees

Each semester every resident is required to pay a Resident Student Club fee to the Resident Student Club of each college, who expend the funds for the benefit of residents.

Application fees

A non-refundable fee of AUD50 is required upon application. Offers for a place in Residential Colleges will be mailed to you once your academic acceptance to USQ has been confirmed (eg when auditions are finalised or QTAC offers are made).

Please note: completion of an application form is not a guarantee of a place in the colleges. 

Insurance

As the University cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to your belongings, it is advised that you take out an 'all risks' insurance policy on your personal belongings and property.
