Rent and Bond

Rent is kept affordable to ensure student residences are available to most students. The accommodation fee includes room, water, electricity and heating.


  • $180.00* (AUD) per week includes electricity payable one term in advance.

When you first move into the residence you must pay a terms rent in advance, or fortnightly payments can be arranged. You must also lodge a bond (totalling 4 weeks rent). Close to the end of the term a form will be sent out asking you to tell us what you are doing in the holidays and for the following term, then we will invoice you accordingly.

The invoice for the following term will include the holiday break rental fee and the cost of the following term. You will receive the invoice in the mail at the end of each term. If you are vacating your room at the end of term you must write that on the form and notify us in writing 2 weeks prior to the end of term. Required vacating paperwork will be sent to you for completion, outlining all necessary vacating procedures. If you fail to return your keys your bond will be forfeited.

  • If you stay in for the term break you will be charged the normal weeks rent.
  • If you are away for the term break you will be charged $20.00* (AUD) per week and may be asked to place your belongings in storage.


  • $720.00* (AUD) 4 weeks rent.

All students pay that amount on signing a contract and you will receive your bond back on vacating your room when you return your keys, and provided your room is left clean, there is no damage caused to CIT property, and there are no outstanding fees owing.

Please Note

  • In holiday breaks, CIT have the right to ask you to place your belongings in storage so we can let the rooms for functions, conferences or study groups requiring accommodation over the holiday break. You will be charged a storage fee of $20.00* (AUD).
