Student Accommodation

LCI Melbourne does not have its own on-campus student accommodation, but there are many housing and accommodation options in the city. Students can choose to:

  • share and/or rent: an apartment, flat or house (consult the Consumer Affairs Victoria Guide), or
  • stay in student apartment complexes or hostels, or
  • live with a family in a home-stay or boarding arrangement.
LCI Melbourne's Student Support Manager can help students get in touch with our partner accommodation provider Ozihouse. For information on accommodation in Melbourne, download the City of Melbourne guide. To find share accommodation, try Flatmates.com.au 

Areas around the inner city are popular with students seeking accommodation. Consider sharing a house or flat with other people to keep rent affordable. Carlton, Fitzroy, Footscray, Brunswick, Richmond, Collingwood offer options that are easily accessible by public transport to the rest of the city and LCI Melbourne campus. Suburbs further out generally offer lower density housing and cheaper rents.
