Heading off to university marks the start of a great new chapter. As one of the most liveable cities in the world, Melbourne is a superb place to do your studies.
If you’ve enrolled at Swinburne University of Technology, it’s safe to say your education is in good hands. But uni isn’t just about making good grades. The right accommodation will make sure you don’t miss out on any part of the student experience.
How to Choose the Right Swinburne Accommodation
When it comes to deciding on where to live for the next three or four (or more) years, it might be difficult knowing where to start. There are plenty of options available, but which one is right for you? In the end it comes down to what aspects of Swinburne student accommodation matter most to you.
Factors to Consider
• Location – It’s no secret Melbourne’s a treasure trove of culture, arts and food. Your location should make the most of everything the city has to offer.
• Social life – Everyone requires different amounts of socialising. Striking your perfect balance between that and privacy is key.
• Budget – Melbourne is certainly a cool place to live but rent can get expensive. Be sure to find somewhere you can afford long term.
There are pros and cons with every student accommodation option:
Pros and Cons of Share Housing
• Pros – Cheap rent, shared cleaning duties, live-in friends
• Cons – Lack of control over shared facilities, less privacy
Pros and Cons of On-Campus Accommodation
• Pros – Social and educational opportunities, close to classes, utilities included with rent
• Cons – Rigid rules, less privacy
Pros and Cons of Homestay
• Pros – Cost-effective, home away from home, cultural immersion
• Cons – Being dependent, fewer chances to meet other students
Pros and Cons of Student Apartments
• Pros – Live independently, self-contained residential areas, social opportunities
• Cons – Fewer chances to meet local students, pay for meals/groceries
Wherever you decide to live will shape your uni experience. To explore your options more thoroughly, head to the Swinburne on-campus and off-campus accommodation page.
