FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

If I pay extra can you guarantee a housing preference?

No. We cannot accept extra money. We feel very strongly that every participant should have an equal opportunity for each accommodation option.

How much does public transport cost?

Travel within Melbourne on the tram system is a very convenient and affordable way to make your way around the city. Regardless of where you live, some students will want to purchase a monthly transportation pass, a MyKi card, to fully experience all that the city has to offer. There is a free tram that operates within the downtown area of the city which TEAN students living in Urbanest can also take advantage of.  

How do we determine who shares bedrooms in our housing?

Students should request any roommate preferences in their housing preference form. We will do our best to accommodate these requests. However, final room allocations will be at the discretion of the housing provider.
