Whether you want to stay for a few weeks or a few months, when you stay with a GBS Certified Host, you know you’re in good hands. Our Homestay families will help you get around and get settled in your new surroundings. Your accommodation with a GBS Family Host means that all of your expenses are covered, including the meal options you choose, PLUS you will have the safety and security of a family environment. You can also practice your English with your family in your homestay home.

Independent Living Options – Academic Rentals

Prefer your independence?  Our independent living options give you choice! These include Room Stay, granny flat or share with other students while having your own private room. Our accommodations are all inspected and screened for your increased peace of mind.

If you would like a little more information, read on below…

Room Stay – your own furnished room in a house with a family. Cater and cook your own meals. You have access to a laundry, kitchen, and common areas of the home, and the knowledge that you have family support nearby to assist you if you need it. Nothing beats the feeling of family in a home away from home.

Granny Flats – your own private space, self-contained with basic furniture, linen and cooking utensils so that you can live by yourself or with a friend/partner. Allows time for study and reflection, with the freedom to come and go as you wish. With GBS, your utilities (gas, power, electric, water) are all included. Essentially, you will have a place to call your own for the same or less than it would cost you to stay in a back packers’ accommodation.

Student Share – shared house or flat/apartment with other students where you have your own room, but share all of the other facilities in the property. Unlike rentals, GBS provides house share options for students where one, two or three students can live together in a large Australian home without the need to pay a bond or sign a lease. This option gives you the ability to move if you find the property or the people you are sharing with a not the right fit for you.
