You will also have student ID photos taken, have your MyCollarts email and account set up, will learn about your course’s subjects and structure, and hear from the student registrar team about student services that are available.

ACCOMMODATION

Student Accommodation

This housing option can be single or shared and is generally more expensive than share houses. These are usually short to long term renting options, most places are fully furnished and many even provide meals.
 
Share Houses
 
The below sites list share houses with rooms to rent. Share housing is generally cheaper than student accommodation, most places already have some furniture, short and long-term options and the added bonus of allowing you to meet new people.
 

Rental Properties

These sites have online listings if you’re looking to rent a property on your own or with friends. Most rental properties will come unfurnished, will require a bond, and you will need to meet certain requirements and sign a lease. 

RealEstate.com
Domain

Other Options

Post a Notice:
If you are looking for a room or people to share with others, try posting a notice on The Common Room (our private Collarts student Facebook page).

Homestay:
Homestay is a great option if you like a family environment. They can be booked through homestay companies who screen the host families and the accommodation for suitability. Check out www.homestaynetwork.org
