University Accommodation

Thursday, December 5, 2002
We continue our search for bargain university accommodation around Australia.

We recently did a story on colleges at the University of Melbourne which open their doors to the public when students take off during semester breaks.

Since then we have received a stack of requests from many of you wanting to know about other campuses offering the same opportunity.

It is one of the cheapest types of accommodation you will ever find and just perfect for solo travellers as most of the rooms are singles.

We have compiled a list of colleges across every major city in Australia which have rooms up for grabs.

The following university colleges offer rooms to the general public during the university semester breaks – subject to availability. The main university holidays are around July and December through to March, though dates vary between universities. Please note that not all colleges have rooms available during all university holidays – some are only vacant during the long December to March holiday.

Rates vary between colleges but generally cost around $30 to $50 a night per person, including breakfast. Some rates include three meals a day, but again this differs from college to college. Most of the rooms on offer are single with shared bathroom facilities.
