Temporary accommodation

When you arrive in Australia, you may need somewhere to stay while you look for long-term housing or wait to move in to your planned accommodation.

Don’t worry – there’s a range of temporary accommodation options for you to choose from.

We have vacancies for on-campus accommodation where students can stay temporarily. The rate is A$55 per night with no minimum stay. We require a credit card payment prior to your arrival.

To make a reservation, please email us and supply your:

  • name
  • student ID number
  • date of birth
  • overseas address
  • intended date and time of arrival.

La Trobe offers an Off-Campus Accommodation Database to help you find private rental and share house vacancies near your campus. We also recommend using the following websites:

When you’re booking temporary accommodation, you might want to find a place close to your campus. Try using Whereis or Google Maps to check how close an option is to campus before making a booking.

Important

If you plan to book free airport reception, you’ll need to provide a booking confirmation number for your temporary accommodation.
