Application hints and tips

Complete your application in full

Incomplete applications may not be considered so make sure you follow the process all the way to the end. You'll receive an email when your application has been successfully completed.

Use a personal email address

Make sure you register an email address that you'll still be using when offers come out. Avoid using school email addresses, as these typically expire before offers are sent so you could miss out on important information regarding your application.

Keep us in the loop

If you apply and then your circumstances change (it happens!) please log back into the portal and cancel your application.

Accepting your offer

If your application is successful, you'll receive a formal accommodation offer via email. The email will contain instructions on how to accept your offer and will also include your first accommodation invoice. You are required to pay this as part of your acceptance.
