Accommodation

There are a number of accommodation facilities available for students in Brisbane. Finding the right accommodation for yourself is important, as it allows you to settle into your new environment faster so you can concentrate on your studies.

AHN Homestay

Students can choose to live with a family in a homestay through the Australian Homestay Network (AHN). Students will enjoy everyday activities with their AHN homestay host including:

  • being shown around the community
  • help with the basics of Australian culture
  • taking part in everyday conversation
  • learning basics such as buying transport tickets, where the local shops are, how to access banking, internet, mobile phone and personal safety tips
  • help with English and 'Aussie' words and phrases
  • help with the search for appropriate longer term accommodation options if required
  • ongoing support from AHN

AHN Homestay is recommended as the best option for all new International Students visiting Australia for the first time. General homestay costs are:

  • $A245* per week single
  • $A215* per week twin share
