Applying for accommodation

Secure your place on campus

Applying for accommodation

Bond’s on-campus student housing is a popular accommodation option for students, especially those moving to the Gold Coast to start their studies. Demand is high, but places are limited, so it is important that you know all the application steps before bookings open.


Secure your room in four simple steps

Step 1: Accept your offer

Before you start the booking process, make sure you have accepted your offer and have your Student ID number written down – you will need it to book your room.

Step 2: See when bookings open

New room bookings open just over a month before the semester starts – usually around the same time class enrolments open. Check the Student Housing Portal to see when your semester’s room bookings will open and make a note of it in your diary. We will also send all new students an email a few days before it opens to make sure you don’t miss your opportunity.

Step 3: Applying for on-campus accommodation

Student housing is extremely popular and in high demand. It's important to apply the day the Student Housing Portal opens. 

Successful students will be contacted within 7 business days of the portal opening with an offer (This is not on a first come first served basis)

From there you will have 48 hours to accept the offer before the room is passed onto the next student. Once accepted, an invoice will be sent for full payment to secure your room on campus. Note, the full semester accommodation and dining plan payment is required at time of booking to secure your room.

For accommodation application dates or to create and manage your room booking application, please go to the Student Housing Portal

If residence is not taken up, a cancellation fee of 4 weeks' rent will apply as per the normal rental industry standard.
