Cancellation fees

If you choose to cancel your Residential Agreement with Accommodation Services, you will be responsible for the rental payment for the whole period of the contract term or until such time as a suitable replacement is found (whichever comes first).

Compulsory fees*

These are one-off annual fees, payable prior to when you first move in and at the start of every year that you are in residence.


The rent is calculated as a daily rate, and charged to your account on the first working day of very month. The rent is due by the fifth working day of the month and is payable in advance. For example, if the daily rate for your residence is A$28 per day, and you are paying for the month of March (31 days), the amount owing is A$28 x 31 days = A$868; and is due by the 7th of March.


From time to time there will be charges that can go on your account, e.g. tickets for a residence event, lock out or late fees. If you are not the person that pays the account, it is your responsibility to communicate these charges to the person that does pay the account.

SMS Reminder: an SMS will be sent to remind residents that rent is due. If you are not the person that pays the account, it is your responsibility to communicate this to the person that does pay the account.
