Halls of residence payment schedules

Financial assistance from StudyLink is not enough to cover accommodation fees for a hall of residence. Use these resources to calculate your shortfall.

Accommodation in the halls of residence is for 38 weeks and is usually paid in monthly instalments. Meeting the instalment payments can be difficult for students who are reliant on the Student Loan Living Costs or the Student Allowance.

The Student Loan Living Costs or the Student Allowance is paid weekly for 37 weeks and payments start the second week of the course.

The first hall instalment is due early to mid-February, before the first StudyLink payment, so you'll need to budget for this.

The remaining instalments can be partially paid by saving the weekly Student Loan Living Costs or the Student Allowance, but this will not be enough to meet the full amount.
