Application process

How do I register ?

If you list Burgmann or John XXIII College, you will also be asked for the contact details of 2 referees.

Once you have filled out the form you will be given a user name and password to check the status of your application. It is important to check the status of your application regularly, especially once you have been made an academic offer.

Remember you can only enter 1 application. Email UAS if you need to make any changes to your application.

  • Applications for Semester 1, 2007 will open on 26 August 2006

Please do not arrive without making prior arrangements for accommodation. We can help you find short-term accommodation before you arrive if needed.

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.
