Postgraduate accommodation

The ANU has establised postgraduate communities in a number of residences.  Demand is high, so we encourage students to also consider other options to maximise your opportunity to live in on-campus accommodation we advise you apply by January 31st.  We will make best endeavours to offer you a place in one of our postgraduate communities. 

When we select residents for our communities we consider the demographics for each residence, we try to get a balance within the following groups:

  • Male / female
  • Domestic / international
  • Diversity in the range of countries international students are from
  • Diversity in the academic program students are studying

A number of postgraduate accommodation locations also accept more mature undergraduate students however they do have a higher proportion of postgraduate students.  Some of the residences which appear on the front page of our website, when filtered, list our postgraduate residences but some of them only take a small number of postgraduate students and it does depend on the guaranteed intake as to how many postgraduate beds we can offer.

All applicants are considered equally and we do not offer a 'first come, first served' selection process.  Some students miss out on our on campus accommodation due to high demand, we will do our best to find you a place.  The University has been building more accommodation which will assist postgraduate students with more beds coming available, this is an ongoing commitment from the Universtiy.
