The SuniTAFE Student Residences are situated at our Mildura Campus on Benetook Ave, providing convenient student accommodation. They are a 30 minute walk from the Mildura city centre and a 5 minute walk from a small shopping complex.
Accommodation is provided for up to 30 full-time residents studying at SuniTAFE or La Trobe University. There is also accommodation for short stays by SuniTAFE apprentices and trainees on block release, students studying at other educational institutions, and visiting student family members.
Organisations requiring accommodation for training activities, festival performers or other purposes are encouraged to talk to us. Catering services are available by request.
Applicants must complete the application form for accommodation at SuniTAFE Residences and submit it to the Residence Office with the registration fee.
Priority is given to students living away from home, first year students, full-time students and second or third year students willing to be Unit Leaders.
Applicants may be required to attend an interview with a Residence interview panel and will be informed of the outcome of their application by mail.
Students will be required to pay the relevant bond amount upon their acceptance into the Residences. Students staying for a full academic year can pay up-front for the year and receive a 10% discount.
Due to duty of care issues, no-one under the age of 16 years is able to reside on Residences without parent or guardian supervision. Students aged 16 or 17 years wishing to live without such supervision will be considered on an individual basis in terms of their maturity and independent living skills. A parent or guardian must make the initial contact with the Residence Office if their 16 or 17 year old is applying for residency.
Prospective residents and their parents are welcome to visit SuniTAFE during which the Residence staff will be pleased to provide a short tour of our Student Residences and answer any queries. Appointments can be made by contacting the Residence Office on 03 5022 3721 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Student Residences are also open for inspection during many SuniTAFE open days and similar events for a short tour with staff who will be happy to answer any queries.
