Our Student Services can assist you with permanent, short-term and emergency accommodation.

Off-Campus Accommodation Database

Off-Campus Accommodation database is a service provided to students free of charge and offers accommodation close to the campus or within easy access of public transport. Listings are usually share accommodation available in private houses, units, flats, or self-contained bungalows.

Accommodation lists are regularly updated on the Melbourne Polytechnic Student Intranet.

Accommodation offers are accepted from the public in good faith. Student Services do not inspect any of these accommodation offers or interview the landlords/owners. Due to these factors we are unable to recommend or take responsibility for the premises chosen. Students are advised to take care in assessing the premises, other occupants and the landlord/owner.
