Hello,
Yes, problery too late for on campus accomodation.

In Canberra with the bush fires it is very hard to get 'cheap' accom. I would suggest contacting the UC Ressies Dept - the uni actually signs up a lease with a private house and you can live in it, therefore prehaps you should contact them ./

Ring them and see whats going on.

You won't get a place living on campus if you apply after the 19th of Jan.. :)

There are only about 1100 spots for people living on campus and most of them are full up by 2nd , 3rd yr people.

When i went to the UC open day you were advised to apply in SEPTEMBER for accomodation.. Even then you weren't guaranteed.. I think they are building all new ones this yr, but i guess that wont be much help :)

Same situation goes at the ANU...'


Prehaps you should look @ renting...

Mr Wiggle,
I live with 2 other students (3 inc me!), and we pay $90 bucks a week rent which is good... I am only 5 min drive from uni - but you can catch bus if you want..

In terms of how much to survive off; My parents pay me the maximum or youth allowance + rent assistance (355 every 2 weeks). They weren't sure how much 2 give me, and i got rejected by centrelink so they pay me that.. I can live off it - as long as i dont buy tonnes of crap... Canberra isn't that expensive to live..


One thing that doesn't include is car insurance, rego, etc - my dad pays that seperate...

If you can't get youth allowance like me, just hope you parents will foot the bill :) I think i may get a part time job this yr...
