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 pricing 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. All ISA Housing options are either within walking distance or conveniently located to public transit routes. Travel times to the various university buildings generally range between 10-20 minute walk depending on housing and class locations.

On-Campus, With Meal Plan
ISA students attending University of Western Australia live in residence halls with Australian and other international students. Each housing option is offered on a first come, first serve basis.

Off-Campus, NO meal plan ISA students attending Murdoch University live in student residences with Australian and other international students. Student housing is assigned on a first come, first served basis.

Students living in the student residence will have a single bedroom and will share bathroom and kitchen facilities with 4-7 other students. The student residence includes additional facilities such as music, study and game rooms, coin operated laundry facilities, a pool, and sporting facilities and is equipped with DSL or wireless internet access port. Bedding is included in the program cost.

Independent Housing
Students may opt to secure housing independently. Students who select this option will be responsible for their own housing during the program and will forgo any ISA assistance for housing matters.

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 differences in culture and lifestyle between life in Australia and the U.S. Remember: the key to a positive experience is flexibility.
