Student Accommodation Options

At MIT, we understand that moving somewhere new can be hard. Fortunately, you have lots of options when you come to Perth to study. We’re here to help you find the option best for you. Student accommodation is widely available with easy access to public transport. We can assist you in securing accommodation on campus at the Murdoch University Village, or by placing you with a local family in a homestay.

Live in a Home

Homestay is a great option if you want a secure, family environment where you can adapt to living in Australia with help.

Australian Homestay Network

Murdoch Institute of Technology (MIT) is proud to be working in cooperation with the Australian Homestay Network (AHN) for the provision of homestay accommodation services to its students.

You will be placed with a local host family that will welcome you into their home. You will live as a family member, have breakfast and dinner provided on weekdays and all meals provided over the weekend. Your evening meal is shared with the family, while breakfast may be prepared by you.

Please note this accommodation option is suitable for under 18 students.

Student Hostels

Hostel accommodation is a good temporary option when you first arrive in Perth. Student Services can advise where you can book into a local hostel until you decide on more permanent accommodation.

In Australia, age restrictions apply to certain accommodation options. If you are under the age of 18 you are required by law to either have a legal guardian who is a direct family member over the age of 21 with whom you will live with in Perth, or live in a homestay arrangement with a local carer approved by MIT.
