When it comes to finding the right accommodation for you, there are a number of resources available.

  • Swinburne Housing Database: To locate a property, choose your campus from the drop-down menu and enter your preferred weekly rent. Includes vacant properties and established share houses.
  • Realestate.com.au: A huge database of private, vacant rental properties to suit your budget and preferred location. 
  • Domain.com.au: A huge database of private, vacant rental properties to suit your budget and preferred location. 
  • Flatmates.com.au: An extensive database of share houses throughout Australia: find a flatmate or find an established house. 

You can also find accommodation in local newspapers, on noticeboards and at local real estate agents.

If you're looking to rent a property, you can contact a Swinburne housing adviser for information and support. There are housing advisers at all of Swinburne's campuses. If you're an international student, you can contact the dedicated housing adviser for international students.

A housing adviser can:

  • help you apply for properties and understand the process
  • give you advice on where you can live, what facilities are available, and what prices are reasonable
  • provide information about cultural and legal issues that may affect you as a renter
  • help you negotiate any conflicts with a real estate agency or landlord.

Unfortunately, we can't find accommodation for you or make accommodation bookings.

Here are some excellent resources for people looking for rental properties in Victoria.

Sharing in a rooming house

Sharing in a rooming house is another off-campus accommodation option that's available to you. The Swinburne housing database does sometimes advertise rooming houses. 

We encourage you to read over Consumer Affairs Victoria's content on rooming houses if you're considering this option.
