Accommodation Off-campus


Cairns off-campus accommodation

If living on-campus isn't for you, there are a number of secure and convenient off-campus options available.

Students looking to rent a room/flat/house can look at listings on our large and highly detailed Off-Campus Database, which is location-specific and updated regularly. Alternatively, you can join and post on our JCU Accommodation group on Facebook for Townsville and Cairns, which is an advertising group the can be used as a message board or communication tool between landlords and potential renters.

A number of Homestay programs are available for both short and long-term periods, from as little as one week!  Homestay allows students to live and become part of a family network during their stay.

The JCU Accommodation team can help you find off-campus housing in nearby share houses, private rental properties, homestays and hostels. Visit our Accommodation website for information on how to apply.
