The Student Guild operates an accommodation service to help students find suitable accommodation and welcomes listings from accommodation providers. Your listing will be advertised for four weeks on our website and also in a glass-fronted noticeboard located on campus at The Link (G07). Current, new and prospective students select accommodation suited to their needs and will arrange to meet with you for an inspection directly.
If you are interested in advertising off-campus accommodation, we recommend viewing the Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) Rooming accommodation agreement as well as the Managing rooming accommodation in Queensland booklet for information and guidelines for renting rooms. The booklet in particular is a worthwhile companion to successfully manage rooming accommodation.
