We provide high quality college-like accommodation for undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled at any university in Melbourne, as well as for academics, researchers and clinicians visiting universities, research institutes and medical precincts in Melbourne.

We offer variable stay durations. You may thus stay for just one night or for weeks, months, semesters or years at a time.
