Student Accommodation

Your home from home

Taylors College offers a wide range of comfortable accommodation for international students. This ranges from safe and secure homestays with Australian families, to more independent student accommodation, apartments and houses.


If you are aged under 18 you will need to live in homestay accommodation. You can still enjoy the independence of living away from home, but with the added security of a safe, home environment. Staying with a local family is also a great way to experience Australian culture and practise your English.

All our homestay families are friendly and welcoming, and experienced in looking after international students. They are police checked and inspected by us before students are placed there.

Student residence

This is the ideal option for students aged over 18 who want independent living with the security of a supervised building. Our student residences are close to the college, providing comfortable, furnished student apartments, with private bathroom and kitchenette. To ensure your safety they have live-in residential supervisors and swipe key access.


UniLodge offers furnished apartment-style living in a choice of city locations. Each building has communal areas where you can cook and socialise with friends. Central Park is the newest location, and is close to a shopping centre, green spaces and transport links.


Experience modern, purpose-built student accommodation in the heart of Sydney. Located in Haymarket, Urbanest is a short walk from Central railway station and within easy reach of Taylors College and Sydney’s sights.

Independent accommodation

If you are over 18 and prefer to live in a house or apartment, our staff at Taylors College can help you find rental or other accommodation close to our campus.
