We've got you! The 3 things to consider when renting a place for uni


Are you enrolling to start University this year? If you’re new to Melbourne, or even if you’re not, looking for accommodation in the city can be a daunting prospect. With so many options available it can be difficult to know where to start.

Melbourne has been voted the most liveable city in the world several times. With its many cultural, dining and recreational activities there is something for everyone. If you choose to live within the city you will have access to a huge variety of amenities, events, festivals and lifestyle activities right on your doorstep!

At Melcorp Real Estate our team of knowledgeable staff know just what students are looking for and we know all the best places to live.

But before you start looking for a homethere are some important aspects to consider:

Decide on your location

If you’re looking for convenience and don’t want to spend so much time travelling to and from Uni, then living near your campus will be the best option. However, if you’re looking to save some money and don’t mind travelling, then staying in neighbouring suburbs may be a better option for you. Don’t forget to consider how much you will spend on transport costs vs the costs of renting close to your university.

Do you want to buy furniture?

If you don’t have the time to shop around, transport and assemble furniture, then a fully furnished property is your best option. If you would prefer to style your own home and buy your own pieces, then an unfurnished property will be less expensive to rent.

Will you be sharing?

Decide if you want to live alone or share with a housemate. You may love the privacy of your own home or you might prefer meeting new people and interacting with others.
