Homestay and accommodation

Bayside can help you arrange your initial accommodation in Melbourne. Some students choose a Homestay – where you live with a family and receive 3 meals each day. For more information about Homestays please look at

Of course, Homestay accommodation does not suit everyone, and we are happy to help you find other accommodation that is close to the College. Student Hostels, flats, apartments or houses you can share are all available on either a short-term or a long-term basis, and there are many to choose from, all within walking distance of Bayside College.

Bayside is a partner with OZiHOUSE who run great student hostels in Melbourne. If you are interested in a student hostel, please check
