Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I move out at any time?

When you move into your apartment, you sign a Residential Agreement. This is a legally binding document that means you have committed to paying rent from the start date on your contract until the end date of your contract.  However, if you have no choice but to move out, you can break your lease. This means that you will need to give a minimum of 28 notice in writing, pay an early termination fee equivalent of 4 weeks rent, and continue to pay rent until someone else takes over your contract or until your contract expires, whichever comes first.

Q. What do I do if I have a visitor?

As this is a secure student accommodation building, all residents are required to meet their guests at the entrance door as this door is only accessible by a resident swipe card/key.

Q. What do I need before I move in?

Your apartment is furnished with a bed, study desk and chair, wardrobe, TV, fridge, microwave and oven. You will need to supply all your own linen & kitchen equipment.

Q. Do you have car parking facilities?

Limited reserved car parking is provided for UniLodge @ Curtin residents.

Q. What happens when I vacate my room?

The student needs to leave their apartment clean and tidy, and ensure all personal items have been removed, report any damage that may have been caused during the tenancy.
