How do the fees work?

Accommodation fees are calculated for the full period stated in the residential agreement, and include utilities such as water, electricity, and access to University WiFi.

In the catered halls, meals are also included.

Accommodation fees for the term of your residential agreement are charged to your room account in the following way:

  • Advance payment and residential services fee:  These are charged to your account prior to the start of your residential period and payment must be received before you are permitted to check in.
  • Remaining balance: These will be applied to your account fortnightly according to the payment schedules below. You are required to make payment of each fortnightly chargewithin 7 days of the charged date.
  • Additional charges: It is your responsibility to ensure that any additional charges made to your account due to damages, defaulting on payments, or items purchased through the online shop are paid in full before you check-out.
But what about my deposit?

At the time you accept your residential agreement, you are required to pay $750 to secure your place ($650 accommodation deposit & $100 administration fee*). As the $650 deposit forms part of your overall accommodation fees, this credit will be applied to your room account at the beginning of your residential period, and goes towards your advance payment.

Please note: The period of the residential agreement is fixed. You will be required to pay for the accommodation for the full period you have agreed to even if you arrive later than the start date, or leave prior to the end date.

*The $100 administrative fee is not a part of your overall accommodation total.
