How does my son/daughter apply for accommodation near UNSW?
All students must download and complete a Tenancy Application form and return it to our office with the required documents, including Passport, a copy of their Visa (if an overseas student), Parental Guarantee, and Letter of Enrolment (COE).
Once our office receives a fully completed Tenancy Application, our Property Manager will check and process the information and advise you of the acceptance of the application.
The Property Manager will contact the student to confirm the terms of the tenancy and arrange for the Agreement/ Lease / Contract to be signed and payment of the first month’s rent and security bond.
