Notre Dame’s Sydney Campus is located in the heart of Sydney in the university precinct. It's an exciting place to live, surrounded by iconic tourist sites, restaurants and entertainment and cafes.
Notre Dame offers an accommodation information service to students looking for accommodation close to the Sydney Campus. We can provide contacts and listings of the accommodation providers around the Sydney city district, close to the university, and within close proximity to public transport.
There are a range of accomodation options 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 Sydney city district. 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.

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.

No accommodation is pre-arranged or personally provided for individual students by Notre Dame.
