Current Students Accommodation



Organising your accommodation is an important step as you prepare for the study year.

You should arrange suitable accommodation before arriving in Singapore. This is extremely important as this will give you plenty of time to complete all the other necessary post-arrival formalities. For instance, medical check-up, student pass application & collection, opening of bank accounts, student administration etc. There is quite a bit to do before you start studying.

Our Accommodation Assistance helps students adjust to their new life in a short period of time. The type of accommodation you choose will depend on a whole range of deciding factors, primarily your budget. There is a wide variety of accommodation types in Singapore to suit different budgets and needs. We can help review your accommodation options, or source and make available accommodation, whether you choose to stay in off-campus hostels, or a serviced apartment, private rental or shared accommodation.

Service Standards for Acommodation Providers

The Singapore campus of James Cook University has a strong commitment to its students, their education and well-being. We understand that it’s not just excellence in education that makes our students successful but also having a physical environment that encourages them to study, to learn and to live. It is critical that our accommodation providers have a similar commitment to helping our students achieve their best.

For the majority of our students, having their accommodation arranged before they arrive is extremely important. It eases the transition to their new life and reassures parents that their children will be safe and looked after when they reach Singapore.

Our accommodation providers must meet benchmark standards set by the University relating to all aspects of accommodation services. The aim of the Service Standards for Accommodation providers is to provide safe, well-integrated and well-managed accommodation for our students. These standards are the minimum our accommodation providers need to offer for a positive, on-going relationship with the Singapore campus of James Cook University and students.
