Accommodation

Short Stay Accommodation

Short stay accommodation options are available through Unistays

Gold Coast

We strongly recommend you book short stay accommodation before committing yourself to a long term lease. On arrival the accommodation officer will assist you in finding and securing more permanent accommodation once you are familiar with the area.

Students attending the Gold Coast campuses live off-campus. The most popular type of off-campus accommodation is a house or unit shared with other students, where students do their own cooking and share the cost of household expenses. Both furnished and unfurnished off-campus rental accommodation is available. For more information about off-campus accommodation options visit: Unistays

Lismore and Coffs Harbour

Coffs Harbour SCU Village provides modern, four bedroom apartments and a recreation lounge a short walk from the campus. With 95 residents, the Coffs SCU Villages offers an inclusive and friendly community.

Wilson's College, Lismore

Wilson's College is a purpose built private college providing accommodation exclusively for Southern Cross University students in Lismore from first year to final year.

Study Abroad and Exchange students wanting on campus accommodation must apply through the International Office as accommodation providers will not accept applications for 20 week leases. Study abroad students should follow the steps outlined on the welcome email.

Off campus

Students can also choose off-campus accommodation. The most popular type of off-campus accommodation is a house or unit shared with other students, where students do their own cooking and share the cost of household expenses.
