CDU StudyStays to help students and homeowners

Charles Darwin University 2 mins read
Charles Darwin University (CDU) is promoting the use of CDU StudyStays to help incoming international students find accommodation amidst high housing demands.

Territorians with a spare room in their homes have the chance to earn extra money with up to 600 Charles Darwin University (CDU) international students expected to flood into Darwin in the next few weeks with nowhere to stay.

In preparation for the students’ arrival, CDU is boosting the use of CDU StudyStays – an online platform providing listings of accommodation vacancies around CDU’s Casuarina, Waterfront and Palmerston campuses.

“When the students arrive to start the semester demand for housing will be strong, at a time when availability is low,” CDU Vice-Chancellor Professor Scott Bowman said.

“These students are making one of the hardest, bravest, and most critical decisions of their lives – moving to a foreign country to pursue their education. One of the difficult decisions these students will have to make is where to live.”

Private and commercial property owners, students and real estate agents can register their properties to be listed on CDU StudyStays.

Listings include details such as rent, lease duration, bedrooms available, a description of the home and photos. Students registered with CDU StudyStays can inquire about properties directly and can receive help from CDU staff, who manage the platform.

“For those wanting to fill a room and receive extra income, welcoming an international student into your home can offer consistent income and the chance to get to know someone with unique life experiences and perspectives,” Professor Bowman said.

CDU Accommodation Services Manager Dr Philip Mosely said CDU StudyStays would become a critical platform for the University and its students in the coming months and years.

“In preparation for this influx of international students, we are bolstering CDU StudyStays to become the go-to tool for our students searching for appropriate off-campus accommodation,” Dr Philip Mosely said.

“With IHD and UniLodge already fully booked, we’re working to provide the most efficient resources and advice through platforms such as CDU StudyStays to make the search for accommodation less daunting for new students.”

CDU StudyStays is part of national software company StudyStays, used by universities across Australia.
