What is homestay?

Homestay is a popular form of accommodation for all domestic and international students, visitors, or anyone who wants to live in a family environment when they are away from home. Students and other guests are usually provided access to a furnished bedroom, meals and facilities such as the laundry and other common areas of the home.

Why Homestay?

Living with local hosts in a homestay provides students and other guests with a safe, hassle-free and comfortable environment whereby they are able to integrate with the local community.

What Is Included In Homestay?

Unlike other accommodation options, homestays offer a complete living experience that includes a furnished bedroom, bed linen, electricity, gas and internet, as well as the use of other public areas in the home. Most Homestays will provide meals, but some homestays offer accommodation only, not including meals.

How Much Does Homestay Cost?​

The Homestay Placement Fee is AUD$345 per person, plus weekly rental as shown below:
