Q. What is first-year exemption? Am I eligible?
If you are a domestic first-year student applying through UAC / VTAC / QTAC / TISC you may be eligible for First Year Exemption.
You are eligible if:
* You did not get accepted to the university
* Were accepted to another university
* The course is now wholly offered online (ie not being taught internally)
If your contract has not commenced you will be refunded your security deposit and cleaning fee where applicable. Please note the application fee and registration fee if applicable are non-refundable.
If your contract has started, you are liable for rent up to the date of notification / moving out of the village.
Your security deposit and associated fees (excluding application, registration and cleaning fees where applicable) will be refunded.
Please note The First Year Exemption will not apply where you have accepted a University Offer but you elect to defer or withdraw from your studies. You must notify Village Management in writing (Resident Notification) within 5 days from the UAC / VTAC / QTAC / TISC Main Round offers release date (generally around late January – refer to the UAC / VTAC / QTAC / TISC website for actual dates).
Q. Can I live here if I am under 18?
To be eligible to live at the village, we require that you are at least turning 18 by the end of first semester to stay with us. A 'Gaurantor Form' is required to be submitted prior to room confirmation.
Q. What if I miss a rent payment?
It is important to always pay your rent on time. If you know there will not be sufficient funds in your account prior to the rent date, please make sure that you email management so that we can make arrangements for you.
If your rent is processed and there are insufficient funds, please note that a $20 late fee will occur and you will receive a breach notice from village management.
Q. What is the application fee?
Our application fee is a one-off processing payment fee which is paid before we can send you your contract. The application fee is non-refundable.
Q. How do I know my application is approved?
If you are successful, you will receive a letter of offer to stay at the village via email.
Please note, an offer can only be sent if all steps of the application process are complete, including application fee payment.
Q. Can I live at the village if I do not study at UNSW?
Unfortunately, we only accept students of the University of New South Wales (UNSW).
