    Residential Hall Supervisors on-Campus

    A Hall Supervisor is assigned to each Hall of Residence. The Hall Supervisor oversees all students and will assist you with academic, social and cultural activities. The Hall Supervisors are concerned for your safety and health while in residence, and report any discipline issues that may arise in the Hall. You are responsible for your own behaviour and must exercise care and concern for the University facilities and your fellow residents.

  • Off-Campus Accommodation

    Notre Dame can provide students with assistance in locating off Campus housing. A range of options are available:

    Rent a house or an apartment 
    Local real estate agencies or private owners advise The University of Notre Dame Australia of available properties for rent in the Fremantle area. Rental properties can be furnished, partly furnished or unfurnished. When considering renting a property, students should consider that landlords require rent to be paid in advance and the payment of a security bond equal to one month’s rent.

    Rent a room 
    There are limited opportunities for this style of accommodation. Renting a room usually consists of a shared bathroom and communal areas of the house, with separate bedroom and study area. Expenses such as power, gas, telephone and excess water are normally paid in addition.

    *We encourage you to familiarise yourself with the Residential Tenancies Act when you are preparing to rent, especially if you have not rented accommodation before. You can find fact sheets to assist you in making an informed decision at www.tenancywa.org.au

    Share with other students
    Many students choose to share a house or apartment with other students. They advertise on the student noticeboards or with the Student Services Office. This arrangement involves having your own bedroom with shared communal areas (kitchen, laundry, living room and bathroom) as well as responsibilities for house-keeping. Share housing can offer inexpensive accommodation, the opportunity to share expenses and build friendships and a social network.
