Paying your account

Paying your account and helpful financial information

Your account will be billed on a fortnightly basis (Weekly Rate x 2). For more information about your weekly rate please see the 2023 Schedule of Fees.

To ensure your account is always up to date, please ensure your fortnightly payment schedule is for two weeks to cover the fortnightly charges. Residents are responsible for fees from the start to the end of the contract period which will be outlined in your letter of offer. 

Our preferred payment method is online through the Accommodation Portal or by BPAY.

BPAY is only available using an Australian bank account. To use BPAY you will need our BPAY biller code (41772) as well as your CRN, which can be found by logging into our Portal and selecting 'Accounts'. Once you have those details, login to your online or mobile banking and set up a recurring payment. You can find more info about BPAY on their website.

Regular payments

Your accommodation account will be billed fortnightly (every two weeks). Fees are due as per the calendar under the Payment schedule tab on this webpage.

You can pay your fees regularly online through the Accommodation Portal or by BPAY.

You can set up automatic recurring payments using BPAY from your Australian bank account. Payments made by BPAY take approximately 48 hours to appear on your Accommodation account statement therefore it is important to take processing time into consideration when scheduling your payments.

If you are experiencing difficulties (financial or otherwise) and you wish to pay your account by another means known as an Alternate Payment Plan (APP) please see your residence office to book a meeting with your residence manager.  

It is important to address your problem as soon as possible. If you apply for an APP (payment in instalments), please ensure that your account is paid in a regular fortnightly, monthly or lump sum payments. Final payment must be received by a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the contract end. 

If you fall behind in payments and have not made acceptable arrangements with us, the University may need to take action such as:

  • applying a late payment fee  
  • cancellation of future payments terms with all future payments required in advance  
  • preventing you access to your room/unit  
  • the withholding of your academic results and  
  • being referred to a credit agency for debt collection, resulting in additional charges and potentially impacting upon your credit rating.   

If you are expecting funds from a scholarship or trust fund but cannot meet the due date deadline for payment in full please email your residence office.

If your parents or another third party will be responsible for the payment of your account, you remain responsible for forwarding details of your account to them. This should be done early so that payment due dates are not missed.
