How will I know if I'm successful?

We'll send your room offer to your Charles Sturt University registered email address. If your first-choice residence is full, we'll offer you an alternative. If we don't have a room available in one of your preferred options, we'll let you know via email and put your name on the waiting list.

International students

The application process is the same whether you’re a domestic or international student. We realise international students might need to arrive before the normal move-in dates, in which case you'll just need to complete a temporary accommodation application form for the period outside the set dates of your accommodation offer.

Temporary accommodation

Charles Sturt University Students or visitors associated with the University may make a request to stay in on-campus accommodation on a temporary or casual basis.

Current Students

If you’re a Charles Sturt student you can make a Short Stay booking via the Starrez Accommodation Portal.

Visitors on campus

If you’re a visitor associated with the University you’ll need to fill out and return the temporary accommodation application form.

Temporary accommodation rates

Prices for temporary accommodation vary according to the length of stay and accommodation type. We will email you a quote once we've received your application form.
