Postgraduate accommodation

The ANU has establised postgraduate communities in a number of residences.  Demand is high, so we do encourage students to also consider other off-campus accommodation options.

In order to maximise your opportunity to live in on-campus accommodation at ANU, we advise you apply by January 31st, and we will make best endeavours to offer you a place in one of our postgraduate communities. To apply for our postgraduate accommodation, please log onto how-to-apply-for-accommodation

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 our residences are listed as postgraduate, but they only take a small number of postgraduate students.  For more information about our residences, including taking a 3D tour, please log onto student-residences

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 online,  this is an ongoing commitment from the Universtiy.
