Living in student accommodation is a great way to get the most of your university experience. In our accommodation, you’ll have access to unique sporting, leadership, spiritual and community engagement opportunities. 

ACU understands that moving from a rural, regional or remote area to one of our campuses could be quite daunting. We want to assist the recipient of this scholarship with a discounted accommodation option for each of our campuses in Ballarat. We are offering a private room in a managed residential house at $20 off per week which adds up to a saving of $1400 over the year.
