Hall applications open on 01 August
Follow the links from the “Apply Now” buttons. You are generally able to save and exit, coming back to your application later if required.
IMPORTANT: At some point in the process you will be asked to “request a CCRF” (Common Confidential Reference Form) – CLICK ON THIS and request a reference. The system will automatically request a reference from the school; you do not need to do anything further about a reference. Just make sure that you click on the “Request a CCRF” button and fill in your details!
The official closing date for applications is 30 September (22 September for UC), but it is recommended that you SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION BY 15 SEPTEMBER.
Offers will be made in the first week of October (Victoria begin making offers in September) and a deposit of around $1 000 is due towards the end of October to secure your place. (Some of this is refundable if you withdraw.)
PUT AN ALERT ON YOUR PHONE SO THAT YOU DO NOT MISS THE ACCEPTANCE DATE.
Each hall has a different payment plan but remember that the student loan living allowance is NOT sufficient to cover the entire cost so many halls request a payment in January to cover the shortfall. This amount varies depending on the total cost of the hostel but could be from $2 000 to $8 000.
