Independent or share accommodation

This is true independent living - renting a room in a shared apartment or house or rent alone.

There are a number of unit complexes or houses specifically for students in Brisbane. In most cases, students will rent the entire house or flat, but there are also opportunities to rent a single bedroom, and share lounge room, kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities with other students who have been selected by the management.

Most rental properties will require you to pay a bond up front. A bond is used as security and is usually equivalent to the amount of four weeks’ rent. This will cover any money owing at the end of the tenancy for any damage to the property. Rental costs vary depending on the accommodation style, type and suburb. Before you rent ensure you find out all the relevant information for renting in Queensland by visiting the Residential Tenancy Authority website.
