Navigating your search for affordable off-campus accommodation can be daunting but fear not! Here’s some practical insights and useful resources to help you tackle the challenges of finding accommodation outside of the university campus.

Explore budget-friendly housing options

  • Search for private rentals in suburbs like Belmont, Cannington, and St James for potentially more affordable housing options close to campus, ensuring you’ll save on transport costs while enjoying budget-friendly housing.
  • Explore homestay network options for a budget-friendly living arrangement with a local family.

Temporary Stays and Short-Term Solutions

  • Explore temporary accommodations through websites like Airbnb and Stayz for initial stays upon arrival.
  • Nesuto Curtin Hotel: Inquire about short-term stays at the on-campus Nesuto Curtin Hotel
  • It’s important to note that short-term accommodation is not recommended as a long-term solution due to its typically higher costs over time.
