The biggest decision before you move to Melbourne will be choosing where to live. Melbourne is a big city with many diverse suburbs to choose from as your new neighbourhood.
The area where you decide to live will influence many things such as travel times to university and work, cost of accommodation, and proximity to your friends and the community.
If you’re looking at private accommodation you should arrive in Melbourne one month before university starts. We recommend booking temporary accommodation before you arrive.
Our student housing service can help you with information and advice on your accommodation options, budgeting and tenancy rights and obligations at any stage of your stay.
