Accommodation in Australia

Accommodation is an important part of the students’ language experience. The English school in Whitsundays Colleges take great care in selecting accommodation – homestay, hotels or apartments.

  • Homestay Accommodation*

Homestay is our most popular accommodation option.

Families are carefully selected, and students carefully matched with host families.

In selecting homestay families, SACE believes it is important to choose families who appreciate hosting international students. SACE homestay is usually a very successful and happy experience for the student.

In selecting host families, we do not look for luxury and comfort in the material sense but for families who appreciate receiving international students (the word ‘family’ should not be taken too literally; our families could include a single parent or a childless couple who take in students because they enjoy the company).

Homestay accommodation includes 3 meals per day and all bed linen and towels.There is a minimum booking of four weeks homestay, unless course length is less than 4 weeks.

  • Whitsunday Student Residence**

The Whitsunday Student Residence is a large, fully self-contained house located within walking distance to the College, beach, shopping centres and bus stop. The house features spacious bedrooms, share kitchen, share living room, share bathroom and share laundry facilities. It is serviced once per week and all linen, cutlery and crockery are supplied.
