Accommodation Fees 2016
Accommodation fees are spread evenly over 42 weeks (Student Village) and 44 weeks (Wintec Apartments) and must be paid regularly on a weekly/fortnightly basis.
Most students leave Wintec Accommodation facilities for the holidays and/or course related placements for several weeks during the year. This has been taken into account in setting the fees. You need to pay even when you're on holiday, or on placement.
You are welcome to apply for the full year or single semester accommodation, however, priority is given to students who contract to stay for the full year.
For Block Course Students – please ring or email for availability and costs.
Once accepting a place at Wintec Accommodation, if a resident vacates their room before their tenancy expires, they will forfeit their contingency deposit and be liable for rent until the end of their contract or pay a penalty of $3000. (This will be at the Manager's discretion)
