Accommodation in Perth

There are a number of off-campus accommodation options if you choose to study in Perth.

Students who are moving to Perth often stay in a hotel or hostel/guesthouse when they first arrive. Many students then move into shared rental accommodation when they are more familiar with the city and surrounding areas. The Accommodation for Students website is a great resource for students researching their housing options.

Hostels and Guesthouses

Hostels are usually run by organisations such as Youth Hostels Australia (YHA) and the YMCA. Students share kitchen and bathroom facilities. This is an economical, short-term option.

Student Accommodation

Designed specifically for students, you will have the privacy of your own bedroom and bathroom in a shared apartment, with access to larger communal living areas and facilities. We recommend:


Homestay accommodation gives students an opportunity to live with an Australian family. This is a great way for younger international students to immerse themselves in Australian life and culture, while maintaining the familiarity and safety of a family environment. Homestay accommodation costs range from AU$200 to AU$300 per week. To find out more, visit

Shared Rental Accommodation

Sharing a rental property is a popular and economic option for both international and local students. If you choose this option you will share the cost of renting a house or apartment with your ‘housemates’. The cost of shared rental accommodation varies depending on the location, size and condition of the premises; you should expect to pay AU$280+ per week. Some things to remember about shared rental accommodation:

  • Landlords require rent to be paid in advance
  • A security bond, equal to one months rent, is required at the beginning of your lease
  • Be prepared to supply you own furniture
  • Cost of utilities such as electricity, water, telephone and Internet is usually in addition to rent

To search for rental properties check out the notice boards on campus, look for advertisements in the local newspapers or go online: or
