On Campus Accommodation
The Bendigo campus is renowned for its excellent range of on-campus accommodation, quality facilities, pleasant surrounds, and active support programs.  The residence life program offers academic mentoring, social opportunities and personal development opportunities. 

Students should apply for on campus accommodation when submitting their VTAC application. 
A comprehensive orientation program that covers support and services on campus is provided before semester begins.

Meal packages/special conditions 
On site meal packages are an optional extra for all residents and served at the Nancy Long Dining Hall. Quiet and alcohol free accommodation is also available upon request. 


 

Off Campus Accommodation
Bendigo has a good diversity of accommodation available off campus including share houses, private board, rental properties and hostels. Generally speaking, accommodation off campus is less expensive than on-campus accommodation but you rarely get the convenience of the close location.

The Uni uses an online listing service called Study Stays to help you find the right accommodation for you. 



Accommodation costs normally depend on the quality and type of property, distance from Uni and any included benefits. It's always a good idea to know your rights as a tenant before you sign a lease.
