How to apply

To join our Residential Colleges community, it's as easy as four simple steps.  Semester 1 applications are still open and our First Year Promise applies.

 Step 1. Apply for accommodation 

Complete your application online. If you experience problems during the application process, please email the Accommodation Officer.  To streamline the application process, please have the following ready:

  • Visacard or MasterCard for payment of the AUD50 application fee (note: that the application fee is not refundable).  Applications received without the application fee will not be processed until the application fee is received and the application complete.
  • Passport sized photo of you for upload.  This is used by Residential Colleges staff during your stay.
  • Once complete, you will receive an email confirming completion of the application, along with login details.  We recommend keeping this email as the login details may be needed in the future.
Step 2. Offer of accommodation

Offers of accommodation are emailed from early November, so please check your nominated email (including junk mail) for your offer.   The offer email will include important information relating to your fees, the rental period and the due date for acceptance of your offer.

If you receive an offer for a catered room, you will be able to choose either the 7 meals or 21 meals package.

Step 3. Acceptance of offer

Once you receive an offer of accommodation, you will need to complete and return the Residential Colleges Agreement Form and acceptance deposit by the due date.  

Payment of fees is deemed acceptance of the Rules of Residency (PDF* 497KB).

Step 4. Start packing!
Once your agreement form is returned and acceptance deposit paid, it's time to start packing!  Information on your orientation program, Resident Student Club newsletter and check-in details will be emailed to you.  

In the meantime, take some time to find out what to pack for your college experience, along with reviewing your eligibility for the Residential Colleges Scholarship (closing 17 November 2017).
