Macquarie University Accommodation has various long-term accommodation options available for its students. You may choose not to take up any of these options, your long-term accommodation may not be available for your anticipated arrival date or you might want to see first-hand what is available before making your final decision about where to live. In all of these cases, you are likely to require temporary accommodation when you first arrive.

Temporary accommodation options range from on-campus residential colleges, off-campus student accommodation, serviced apartments to hotels and youth hostels/backpackers. Suburbs close to Macquarie University include North Ryde (the area of Macquarie University), Marsfield, Epping, Macquarie Park, Lane Cove, and Chatswood.

Our accommodation partners, Dunmore Lang College and Robert Menzies College, offer temporary accommodation options. You can also choose to extend your stay and secure a long-term arrangement with the help of our Accommodation Officers.
