Family Discount

We offer a family discount to any siblings who reside at the Halls concurrently. The discount applies to each eligible sibling. Make sure you notify your Hall office if you are eligible to receive this discount.

$5 per eligible sibling, per week.

If your account is in credit at the end of the residence contract period, credits can be refunded upon request or carried over for the following semester.

Where fees have been paid by direct debit from a credit card or bank account, or paid online by credit card, refunds can usually be processed to the same account.

Alternatively, we can transfer the refund to a nominated bank account. A processing fee applies to international bank transfers.
