Housing Information

Housing is provided on all ISA programs in the Pacific region, at an additional cost. There are a range of housing options and costs vary according to host university, accommodation selected and session. Please review the details within your chosen program session.

A Housing Commitment Fee of $1,000 must be paid by the Final Forms and Payment due date. This fee is nonrefundable after the payment due date and is applied to overall housing costs. The total housing cost will be billed 3-4 weeks prior to the program's departure, once a housing assignment has been allocated.

ISA Housing provides the opportunity for students to experience aspects of the Australian lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor of Australia. The experience of living in another culture will be both educational and rewarding so long as you stay open-minded and reasonable at all times. There are many differences in culture and lifestyle between life in Australia and the U.S. Remember: the key to a positive experience is flexibility. With this in mind, you can become a true Aussie!
