Applying for accommodation as a non-direct applicant

If you are not a domestic direct applicant and will be applying to study at ANU and need accommodation, you will need to make a separate application on the Accommodation Services Portal.  When applying for accommodation please carefully review the application timelines and key dates. 

If you are an undergraduate student commencing in your first year first semester at ANU, you are guaranteed accommodation in one of our approved residences.  We will try to offer you your preference, but if this is not possible we will offer you a lifestyle alternative. 

Should you still wish to move to a different residence, you can apply to participate in the bi-annual inter residence transfer process.  For more about the inter residence transfer.
