Student Accommodation in Australia
Student Accommodation in Australia. Finding somewhere to live can be a daunting task, especially for those who have never lived away from home before. When the accommodation you are looking for is abroad it makes the process even harder. However there are always things that you can do to make finding a room that little bit easier.

Living costs in Australia
The cost of living as a student in Australia is much lower than in many other places – the US and the UK included. It is hard to gauge everyday expenses, as it of course depends entirely on the individual. However, an average of AUD$9306 per year, or $174 per week, has been calculated as the amount a student may spend by universities.

Why Australian Universities?
The continent of Australia is often thought to be very geographically isolated. Historically, to many people in Europe and North America, the idea of Australia being ‘down under’ was quite real. Even today, many people in the Northern Hemisphere think of Australia as somehow detached, or separate to the major land masses of the globe.
