-- Demand for quality, affordable and professionally managed student accommodation continues to grow in popularity as the international demand for university places increases in Australia. We all look for good quality accommodation for ourselves when we travel, and it is no different for overseas students when they travel abroad to commence university studies. One of the biggest challenges students and their parents involves the selection of the ‘right’ accommodation from the large number of student accommodation types and options on offer.
There are several different types of student accommodation options and each caters specifically to the needs of overseas students. These range from university residential colleges, on campus university accommodation, purpose-built student accommodation, as well as residency halls and university owned apartments and professionally managed student hostels, all of which are popular choices for new students who might not yet know anyone else in university. Demand of student accommodation that is affordable, close to campuses and which provides easy access to public transport is growing in both number and popularity, and is particularly highly sought after by newly arriving students.
There is also privately rented, off-campus accommodation offerings. You can secure a single room or share a flat or house with friends, or rent a room in family home, also known as a ‘homestay’. Being clear about what’s on offer makes it easier to choose between the options to find the one that best suits your needs and budget.
The challenge for first-time students is to work out what’s included in the price of your preferred accommodation choice. Beyond just comparing offerings based on rent per week, it’s important to know if it is a single room, or shared, is the room fully-furnished, does it include meals or is it self-catered? What ‘utilities’ (water / gas / electricity / internet etc.) are included and how are bills or excess charges handled? What about cleaning? Also consider things like a quiet place to study where you can work without interruption, as well as ‘social spaces’ where you have the opportunity to meet new people and make lasting friendships.
Australia is an affordable destination and its large number of international recognized universities, private technical colleges and English language-institutes are attracting increasing numbers of overseas students every year, all of who required student accommodation. Cities like Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide are popular education centers and have large international student intakes each year.
To address this growing demand, the team at Student Accommodation Finder created Australia’s first and most comprehensive an online student accommodation portal to assist incoming students to easily search, compare and apply directly to their preferred student accommodation.
The concept grew from lessons learnt from over 20 years of combined experience working with international students, with Student Accommodation Finder Directors Andre Amrein and TJ Malhi, set out with the goal of creating Australia’s leading student accommodation portal that caters to the needs of both domestic and international students.
