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 Townsville Accommodation group on Facebook, which is an advertising group the can be used as a message board or communication tool between landlords and potential renters.
There are plenty of options available that are close to campus, the beach or town. A number of Homestay programs are available for short and long-term periods. The Homestay program 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.
