As a hub of culture and academia, Canberra is a great place to attend university. If you’ve enrolled at ANU, finding the right student accommodation will help you feel at home in Australia’s capital city.
How to Choose the Right ANU Student Accommodation
When looking for accommodation near ANU, consider the type of living experience you’re hoping to have while at university. Some students find living on campus too restrictive, while others may struggle with the logistics of share housing.
It’s important to factor in your personal needs, as there’s no one-size-fits-all-solution when it comes to student accommodation.
Things to Consider
- Location – Living on campus offers convenience, but you may find it more difficult to familiarise yourself with Canberra.
- Social opportunities – Do you thrive in lively social settings, or are you more suited to quiet environments?
- Budget – Canberra’s growing job market and reputable university sector has increased rental prices in recent years.
ANU students have plenty of choice when it comes to finding somewhere to live. To find suitable accommodation, it’s important to consider the pros and cons associated with the different types of ANU student accommodation.
Pros and Cons of Share Housing
- Pros – Cheap rent, opportunities to meet new people, flexible living arrangements

Pros and Cons of Homestay

Pros and Cons of Student Apartments
