Finding a place to live whilst you study

Students can choose from a variety of options for their stay in Brisbane; such as share housing, student hostels, home stay or rental accommodation.

Home Stay / Boarding Options

Home stay is an excellent choice for students wanting to experience living in an Australian home, while at the same time improving their English. Students generally have their own furnished bedroom and share living spaces with their home stay family. Meals are included; however telephone calls and travel expenses are not. Your host family will help you learn about travelling to classes by public transport. Please contact the Director of Studies if you would like assistance with setting up a possible home stay at This email address is being protected from spambots.

"Brisbane is a small city, very beautiful and it is a perfect place to study. It wasn't a problem for me to settle in, even though I came here by myself due to the helpful people and the beautiful environment.  For any students thinking about studying at Spencer College – they should go for it."
Neepa Patel, Diploma of Hospitality
