We will help you adjust to university and succeed in your course, through services that include:

  • academic support and development

International business student Michelle Lee Pei Hua has built a global network from VU.

"By studying in Melbourne, I have gained global exposure and experience. I am currently working at a fast-moving consumer goods distributor as a management trainee for accounts in my home country, Malaysia."

Finding somewhere to live

If you're looking for somewhere to live, with other students, the most straightforward choice would be to stay in our UniLodge @ VU student accommodation (across the road from our Footscray Park Campus). The modern accommodation has been purpose built with students in mind. It's fully furnished so you won't have to worry about buying a fridge, freezer, or many other household items like TVs, heaters, study desk or chair. 

We also have a Student Housing Service to provide VU students help navigating the sometimes complicated process of living away from home. The housing support services we provide include:

  • renting advice and assistance
  • rental information in multiple languages
  • access to, and free advertising in, the student housing database
  • links to groups and support programs that can get you into the right accommodation
  • advice on tenancy issues
  • information about moving in, staying, and moving out of your rental property.
