We know that this is an exciting time for you and that you probably have many questions, especially regarding your accommodation offer. We have put together some content that we are looking forward to sharing with you. The information relates specifically to domestic undergraduate students that applied directly to ANU for 2023.
When will I receive my accommodation contract and when do I need to pay?
When direct entry early offers are released on 5 September 2022, you will have your accommodation allocation listed in your offer. To secure your accommodation, you must accept the accommodation offer in the direct entry portal as soon as possible.
Please log in to your direct entry application here ANU Admission and accept all the components of your offer.
You need to accept your direct entry early offer by 5 October 2022 11.59pm.
At this stage, you are only required to accept the offer which is confirming that you wish to have a place on campus in student accommodation. You are not required to make any payment or sign any formal contract at this time.
Formal accommodation contracts, along with acceptance fee payments, will be issued when final confirmed offers are released in late December 2022/early January 2023 (TBC) through the direct entry pathway.
Can I defer my accommodation offer?
If you are deferring your academic offer, you need to do this in the direct entry portal. By deferring your academic offer, your accommodation offer is cancelled as we do not defer accommodation offers.
You will be able to apply for accommodation when you commence studies at ANU by applying through the Accommodation Services Portal at the appropriate time.
If you accept you academic offer, but you decide to reject your offer of accommodation and then later decide that you need accommodation, you will need to apply through the Accommodation Services Portal when 2023 applications open from 1 September 2022.
You will still be under the accommodation guarantee.
What happens if I receive my direct entry early accommodation offer but it's not my Residential preference?
While all efforts are made to allocate students to their preferred Residence, this may not always be the case.
Allocation is based on the number of available beds after returning students have been placed, along with ensuring demographics in each Residence to achieve a balanced community from metropolitan, regional, rural, remote and international locations.
The Residence you have been allocated to will show in your direct entry early offer which is released on 5 September 2022.
We will open an Accommodation Preference Change Request Form (10 October 2022-18 November 2022 TBC) and this information will be emailed to you AFTER the closing date of 5 October 2022 11.59pm
To apply for an accommodation preference change you must accept your direct entry early accommodation offer first. We cannot make any changes prior to this.
If I do apply for Accommodation Preference Change Request when it opens when will I be notified if I am successful?
Outcomes of any Accommodation Preference Change Requests will be notified by 5 December 2022 COB.
What happens if I do apply for Accommodation Preference Change Request when it opens but I am notified it's not successful?
Don't worry! Your original accommodation allocation offered through the direct entry early offer will still be valid and you will receive your formal accommodation contract, along with acceptance fee payments, when final confirmed offers are released in late December 2022/early January 2023 (TBC) through the direct entry pathway.
When do I need to accept my accommodation offer by?
You will need to do accept your direct entry early offer by 5 October 2022 11.59pm.
Please remember to all components of the direct entry early offer . By just responding to the academic offer does not ensure a flow through to the other offer components-these all must be responded to separately.
I did not apply for accommodation on campus by the direct entry pathway closing date of 23 May 2022 but have now changed my mind. Have I missed out?
You haven't missed out.
You can still apply for accommodation directly through the Accommodation Services Portal.
We will make accommodation offers in January on a rolling basis and information will be sent via email.
When will I receive my formal accommodation contract for 2023?
