How do I apply?

You must complete your application using the Halls of Residence Online Accommodation Portal to be considered for accommodation at the Halls of Residence, The University of Queensland, Gatton Campus.

Please note: Submitting an application does not guarantee you will be offered a room. Demand for accommodation often outweighs the rooms we have available. To give yourself the best chance of being successful, please ensure you complete your online Application including Selection Criteria thoroughly.

The payment of an online Non-Refundable Application Fee (AUD $55.00) is required to complete the application process.

When should I apply? 

Please complete the Online Application as soon as possible. Applications for Semester Two received by mid June will be given preference over later applications. Late applications will be considered but will be determined by room availability.

Do not wait until you have received an offer to study from The University of Queensland.

How do I know if my application is successful?

Offers for accommodation (for both domestic and international students) will be emailed (to the email address you provided on your application) mid June.

An offer pack will be emailed  to you with your acceptance document, pre-arrival payment information and payment schedule for Semester 2. Further details in relation to check in dates and what to bring will be also be emailed to successful applicants mid June.

If you are unsuccessful in obtaining an offer for Semester 2 accommodation, you will be notified by email mid June.

Please Note: For a variety of reasons, history has shown us that not all students who receive an offer of accommodation will accept. Late offers will be made to applicants on a waiting list as rooms become available.

Status of applications will not be discussed over the phone.
