Overseas Study encourages students to apply for more than one housing option simultaneously as there is limited space available. Some housing options will require an application fee and an extensive application. If you have questions, please contact Overseas Study. If there is no availability in University accommodation, students will need to consider other housing options such as private rental accommodation. If you have questions, please contact Overseas Study.
