How are residents chosen ?
We select residents from large numbers of applications. We look
for a balance of backgrounds, trying to ensure a diverse community.
You are asked to provide your top 4 preferences for accommodation.
If you miss out on your 1st preference, we will try and place
you in your 2nd or 3rd. We cannot promise that students will get placed
in a residence of their preference, so students should be willing
to accept any ANU approved accommodation that they are offered.
When will I know if I am accepted ?
- New domestic students will be sent an offer of accommodation after
they have received an academic offer to study at ANU, this will be from 26 June onwards.
- New international undergraduate students will be sent an offer of accommodation after they have accepted their academic offer.
- New international postgraduate students will be sent an offer of accommodation after 26 June depending on vacancies
This means that most international students will need to pay their course fee deposit before they can confirm their accommodation.
Accommodation offers will begin from 1 May and will be sent via email to students as they accept their academic offers.
It is very important for international students to accept their academic
offers early. This usually involves paying your course fee deposit.
The earlier you accept your academic offer, the earlier we can confirm
your accommodation. Students who accept their academic offer late
may not be guaranteed accommodation.
If you have any special requirements due to your health, disability
or personal circumstances, it would be helpful to include
this information with your application form. This will enable us to
plan to meet your requirements, eg. easy disability access to all
Hall facilities. You can also discuss your circumstances with the management
of the Hall of your choice.
