Finding the best place to live in Queensland.

Many students living away from home choose to stay with Australian families or share an apartment with other students.

Living with Other Students or Friends

Many students share apartments or live on their own. It is recommended that students arrive in Australia early in order to visit apartments and meet potential roommates before making a commitment. You may like to book into a hostel for your first few days or a homestay and then look for share accommodation with other students you will meet.

Living with an
Australian Family

Homestays are designed to support international students while studying in a different country. Students learn to understand the language, culture and customs of the region in which they are studying. Many of our students make life-long friends with their host. ICQ recommends AHN which is Australia’s leading homestay organisation.
