When you arrive in Melbourne one of the first things you will need to do is find somewhere to live. RMIT University does not have accommodation at its city campus, but there is a range of long-term and short-term options available depending on your needs. Go to RMIT’s Accommodation web page for more information.
There are special rules for renting different types of accommodation in Australia. These rules are important because they can protect you. You should make sure you understand these rules before you sign a rental agreement.
If you are under 18 years of age, you must live in approved accommodation. You will find a list of RMIT University approved providers here.
Speak to the Student Services team if you have any questions about accommodation.
