Student Accommodation

Living in Paradise

Cairns has many options for accommodation, from homestay and sharehouses to premium apartments and more.

Please note: Sharehouse accommodation has very limited availability for the next few months.


Great way to experience Australian culture.  Living in a homestay is an ideal way of quickly becoming familiar with a new culture and environment and there is a greater progress in English language skills.

  • 3 meals/day on weekend
  • Airport pick up and drop off by host family
