Married couples can apply for college accommodation in the same manner as single students but should remember that all costs are calculated per person. We suggest a weekly budget as a couple will start from $500 per week including accommodation, bills, food and minimal transport cost.
We encourage families to source their own accommodation privately, due to the different size and requirements of each family. We have a team of married students ready to assist you and in many cases even house you for a short period, until suitable accommodations can be found. College will be in contact with helpful information to guide you through this process. Before arriving you can visit the following websites: www.realestate.com.auor www.domain.com.au. Search for suburbs surrounding our Hills campus within walking distance or a 10-20 minute drive from campus: Bella Vista, Baulkham Hills, Glenwood, Stanhope Gardens, Kellyville, Kellyville Ridge, Blacktown, Seven Hills, Rouse Hill and Castle Hill. Most of these suburbs have schools close by.
Please note that the Australian Government requires that school age children must be enrolled in a school before arrival. See www.immi.gov.au
Schooling Options for Children
As it is required that any school age child must be enrolled in either public or private schools, the following websites may prove helpful in providing information on schools in New South Wales:
As the course schedule can be quite demanding at times, you may require extra support in the form of after school care. Please also take this into consideration when finding school options for your children.
