ANU made me feel happy, at peace, and I enjoyed every day of my life there. After I finished my study at ANU in July 2017, I returned to China and worked in a cultural heritage research team of the Chinese Academy of Cultural Heritage (CACH) in Beijing. Without ANU, I would not have been able to find such a good job.” cass.anu.edu.au/profiles/jiani-li

2020 Postgraduate Programs 13 Because Canberra is a university town, the highest turnover of rental properties is during the December/January summer break. Renting Advice: anu.edu.au/study/accommodation/advice-procedures/renting Applying for a lease In Canberra, real estate agents and property owners often insist that prospective tenants see the property before applying for a lease, to be seriously considered. To apply, you will need to fill out an application form which will ask you about your personal circumstances, including your financial situation.
You will also be asked for referees, people who can verify that you are trustworthy, like a previous landlord or employer.
The agent should let you know within a week if your application has been successful. Setting up your home Your lease will usually be for a period of six to 12 months. You will be responsible for organising the utilities connections. Water will be connected by the owner but you will need to pay for the water you use. Factor in these costs when setting up your new home: > > Bond is usually four weeks’ rent and is held by the ACT Office of Regulatory Services. Provided you don’t cause damage to the property and maintain it, the bond will be returned to you in full at the end of the lease > > As well as bond, you will probably need to pay four weeks’ rent in advance > > Connection fees for the telephone, electricity, gas and any other utilities you choose to connect at the property > > It’s a good idea to take out household contents insurance > > Moving expenses > > Canberra has a broad range of recycled, second-hand and brand new furniture and household suppliers.
If you have a dispute with the landlord or real estate agent, Accommodation Services and the Tenants Union ACT can give you advice and advocate on your behalf.
tenantsact.org.au On-campus ANU gives you more opportunities to live on campus than any other Australian university, so you can make the most of your time here. Apply to join nearly 5,000 students from across Australia and around the world who call ANU home. Postgraduate students can apply for on-campus accommodation in these residences: Self-catered > > Bruce Hall Packard Wing > > Fenner Hall > > Toad Hall > > Ursula Hall Laurus Wing > > Graduate House > > Davey Lodge > > Kinloch Lodge > > Lena Karmel Lodge > > Warrumbul Lodge > > Burgmann College Postgraduate Village > > Wamburun Hall > > University House We cannot guarantee that on-campus accommodation will be available.
Also, student residences are not suitable for children, so you may need to explore renting off-campus (non-ANU). We recommend arriving in Canberra early to find non-ANU accommodation.
anu.edu.au/study/accommodation/advice-procedures/ postgraduate-accommodation Share a house or apartment Shared accommodation can be hard to find if you’re not in Canberra. Shared households in Australia take different forms; some share meals and rotate household chores, while others have multiple people living in the same house but keeping separate lives. A good place to start looking for shared accommodation is ANU Housing Online. housingonline.anu.edu.au anu.edu.au/study/accommodation/advice-procedures/ group-housing Rent privately You can rent an apartment or house privately through a real estate agent or direct from the property owner.
