Wondering how much it cost to live in Sydney as a student? Sydney is the most expensive city in Australia, especially when it comes to accommodation. That’s why it’s important to start your search early. Use the Erasmus Play search engine to explore a wide range of verified accommodations from multiple platforms and websites. In this article, you’ll find the essential information when looking for student housing in Sydney.

Student flats for rent in Sydney

Renting a full apartment in Sydney is not usually the preferred option for international students because of the high cost of it. However, if you prefer having your own space, studio apartments are the most common option available, usually suitables for one or two people.

Also, most student apartments for rent in Sydney come fully furnished and ready for you to move in.

Student rooms for rent in Sydney

Renting a room in a shared flat or residence is the most popular choice among international students moving to Sydney for a while. This option allows you to share the experience with other young people while saving on rent and utility bills. Make sure to pay attention to the details of each room since they can vary significantly.

In Erasmus Play, you can find rooms starting from 650 AUD per month with all amenities included.

Renting a room in Sydney is the cheapest option for students staying for 4-9 months and for those who are willing to share accommodation with others.

Student accommodation in Sydney

Different areas in the city are convenient for students, but prices can vary greatly between neighbourhoods. Public transport costs in Sydney are high, so many students prefer to live close to their university. Here are some of the most popular neighbourhoods among international students living in Sydney:

Apartments for rent in the centre of Sydney

This area is the busiest in the city, featuring many well-known landmarks like the Sydney Opera House and Pier, as well as popular shopping areas. You’ll find a large number of restaurants and entertainment venues to enjoy in the city centre.

Apartments for rent in East Sydney

This area is a bit farther from the centre but has good transport connections. It’s a great spot for beach lovers with places like Bondi Beach nearby. This area is usually quieter but still filled with stores and leisure sites. Some neighbourhoods to check out in this area are North Bondi, Rose Bay, Tamarama, Bronte, Bellevue Hill, and Coogee.

Rooms for rent in Inner Sydney

Inner Sydney’s suburbs offer several great options for students. In Inner East, you’ll find neighbourhoods like Surry Hills and Redfern, which are filled with popular hangout spots among students, including nightclubs. On the other side, Inner West features areas like Newtown, Marrickville, and Erskineville. Accommodation here is usually cheaper, but the vibe is just as lively.
