Short stay accommodation

As some student residents leave for the summer, we are able to offer casual vacancies in our Student Living communities for individuals, groups and conferences.

Select from a range of accommodation styles, from self-contained apartments through to budget-priced college-style single rooms with shared facilities in both Hobart and Launceston. These are only available during December and January.

We offer a variety of accommodation options to suit your needs and budget. You can book a self-contained apartment, unit or flat or an individual room within a more traditional 'halls of residence' feel. You can self-cater, or enjoy our on-site dining.

We can also accommodate your sporting team, special interest club or touring group. We regularly host educational groups, sporting camps and teachers' conferences.
