You don't have to live on campus to get an authentic CSU experience. Lots of students live in our campus cities, renting an apartment or sharing a house with friends.
The regional cities are big enough to offer all the conveniences and entertainment options you'll want, without the hassles that you might find in the capital cities. You'll have regular, convenient public transport options to and from all our campuses and if you drive or ride, you'll find the traffic a breeze.
CSU Division of Student Services operates an off campus student accommodation register, which will help you find people offering accommodation including board, shared and rental options. You'll also have no trouble finding your own accommodation through the usual property websites if you'd prefer to handle it yourself.
