Under 18 Student Accommodation in Australia

So, you’re an underage student wanting to exchange in Australia. You need accommodation, but it’s not as simple as that. If you want to get your student visa to be approved, you’ll have to find a certified accommodation provider.

When it comes to foreign exchange in Australia, the Department of Home Affairs requires under 18 students to have accommodation approved by their university provider. And that’s fair enough right? Safety’s always the best policy.

In light of all this business, The Student Housing Company has made safety and security our business. And this is whether the Government wants us to or not! At TSHC we believe safety and security are fundamental ingredients for your mental and physical wellbeing. We’ve gone the extra mile, beyond just a lock on the door.

So, calling all those underage students out there! Are you wanting (or needing) those good old safety-assured, nurturing community vibes? Well stop your searching. We’ll be your first and last port of call.

Government Requirements for Under 18 Accommodation

Under 18 student visa, boring stuff that has to be done
When it comes to accommodation and welfare, the Australian government has some pretty strict requirements for international students under 18 years of age. Overseas students (with a student visa) that are studying with an Australian education provider have to ensure their accommodation is government approved. So, you’re under 18 and planning on studying in Australia. What’s the next step?

If you want the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) to approve your student visa application, you’ll need to find an accommodation provider that satisfies DIBP requirements. One of the main visa requirements will be that your student accommodation, support and general welfare is ensured for the duration of your stay in Australia (or at least until you turn 18).

So, time to get snappy and find a certified accommodation provider if you’re wanting that visa to go through. The first step is to make sure your accommodation and welfare arrangements are approved by the university that you’re planning to study at. Your education provider is responsible for making sure your accommodation and welfare arrangements tick all the DIBP boxes. Once that’s all been approved, your education provider will issue you a welfare letter (CAAW) form. You’re going to need proof after all.

When, and only when, your future university has given that the tick of approval, you’ll be able to submit your student visa application to the Australian Department of Immigration. When you apply for your student visa, you will have to include the following supporting documents from your education provider; 1. Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) and 2. Confirmation of Accommodation and Welfare (CAAW). You can get both of these documents from your education provider.

And if you or your parents have any concerns or need any further information about accommodation and welfare arrangements, feel free to contact your education provider. Australian education providers are responsible for helping students to access high-quality education opportunities and a safe learning environment, and are always happy to discuss options with you.
