There's nothing quite like having a space of your own – especially when you're studying. You can choose to live on or off campus, and both options have plenty of benefits. We also accept bookings from individual travellers and groups for our on-campus accommodation (subject to availability).

Move in for the year, or stay just a night

On campus

Living on campus is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the JIU experience. Plus, students who live on campus are better connected and more likely to achieve higher grades than their peers.

Off campus

Off campus

There are plenty of options if you'd like to live off campus. JIU’s HouseMe website provides a database of local houses available to rent, near to each campus.

Stay at JIU

Our on-campus accommodation isn’t just for students. We welcome academics, school groups, families and individuals to stay with us throughout the year in one and six, and for the summer months in Geelong.

Why live at JIU?


100+ activities and events await you at each campus and will help you to get to know your surrounds, have fun and make lifelong friends.


When you live on campus, you will have more time to do the things you want with class no more than a five minute walk away.


Living alongside you are carefully selected residential leaders, combine this with 24/7 customer service and security and you will feel settled in no time.
