How to apply

You can apply online to live in on campus at Swinburne in a college room, shared apartment or studio apartment.

Applications for Semester 2 2018 accommodation have now closed.

Please contact a housing advisor if you require assistance finding accommodation.

Eligibility

To be eligible for a place in Swinburne's on-campus accommodation, you need to be studying or have an offer to study full-time with Swinburne at the Hawthorn campus.

If you don’t have your offer to study yet, you can still apply. You’ll need to email proof of your offer to residences@swinburne.edu.au as soon as you receive it.

When we assess applications, we give a higher priority to students who are starting their first semester of study at Swinburne, or live more than 80km away from the Hawthorn campus.

We also aim to have a diverse group of people living on campus.

Applying

To apply, go to the Swinburne residences portal and follow these steps:

  1. Create a Swinburne residences portal account.
  2. Work through the application steps. You can save your application and return to it later.
  3. Pay the $45 application fee when you're ready to submit your completed application.

If we offer you a place, you will receive an email. You will then need to sign in to the Swinburne residences portal again to accept your offer.
