Finding a home
As a Swinburne student, if you want to live on or near our Hawthorn campus, you've got lots of options. Living on campus isn't just about being close to class – you also get to join an amazing community. If you prefer to live off campus, we have a range of resources to help you find the right home.
Accommodation support team
At Swinburne, we have a dedicated accommodation support team that are available during working hours, and duty resident advisers after-hours, who can help with any problems you may experience on campus.
If you have a problem, or just want to talk to someone, chat with our friendly on-campus resident advisers (they can even help you organise events and activities).
Short-term and crisis accommodation
If you're arriving in Melbourne and need short-term accommodation, there are a range of options close to each of our campuses, including hostels and hotels.
