Residential Colleges Accommodation Assistance Scholarship

***The Accommodation Assistance Scholarship is being discontinued from 31 December 2023. The University has reset accommodation fees in 2024 to ensure residents are not unduly impacted by the discontinuation of this scholarship.***

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Queensland housing shortage, the University of Southern Queensland is offering a Residential Colleges Accommodation Assistance Scholarship. This scholarship will be automatically applied for all eligible students. 


Each scholarship will be a $55 per week discount to be paid as a reduction in Residential College fees across Semester 1 and Semester 2 2023. 


To be eligible, the following criteria must be met:

  • New or continuing permanent resident to the Residential Colleges for Semester 1 and Semester 2 2023
  • Studying a Preparation, Undergraduate or Postgraduate program
  • Students receiving another residential scholarship (e.g. Residential Colleges Scholarship, Regional Leaders Scholarship, etc.) are not eligible

Application process:

There is no application process for this scholarship. The reduction in rent (or prorated amount), of $55 per week, will be applied to all fortnightly resident invoices. After each study period census date, accounts of residents receiving other residential scholarships will be adjusted to remove this discount.
