We recommend that you choose to stay with a homestay family for at least the first 5 weeks of your course or program. Homestay accommodation is a great way to learn about Australian culture and to practice English in a safe, friendly and relaxed environment.
Other accommodation options in the local area include apartments and private rentals in share houses. UQ also has on-campus residential colleges, however these tend to require full-year bookings and can be difficult to get into.
