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.


High School Program students 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.

Nhat from Vietnam studying the Taylors High School Program

"I live in Mascot in a homestay, close to the College. They take care of me. They treat me like my parents, for real. They cook nice food. They are Australian, so they cook me beef steak. I like that the most. There are three other students here, also in Taylors College. Two of them from Vietnam, then one from China. We are speaking English, so that's good. I like them."
