The International Student Support team will arrange temporary accommodation for up to seven days for the newly arrived Australia Awards Scholarship (AAS) students. In many cases, it is possible for the student to remain in these pre-arranged accommodation options permanently should the student choose to do so.
If required, James Cook International will assist the newly arrived students in seeking permanent accommodation. This assistance takes the form of a free transport service for any students wishing to view available accommodation options. JCU has a comprehensive off-campus accommodation database listing rooms, units or houses available for rent.
