Accommodation Requirements For Under 18s

All international students who are under 18 years of age must satisfy one of the following accommodation requirements whilst studying at Griffith College:

  • Live with at least one parent; or
  • Live with an adult who normally lives in Queensland (other than an overseas student) who has been appointed in writing by a parent of the student to act as the student’s guardian; or
  • Live with an approved Griffith College homestay provider.

Griffith College ensures that students satisfy one of these requirements by obtaining written documentation from the students’ parents prior to the student commencing their studies. If during the period of enrolment any student under 18 years of age is not living under one of the above requirements, then arrangements will be made for the students accommodation arrangements to be changed in order to satisfy this requirement or the student will be reported to the Australian Department of Home Affairs for a breach of their student visa condition. Students who wish to change into alternative accommodation must contact the Accommodation Manager or the Student Counsellor to gain written approval prior to moving.
