Renting a room in Perth

Room rental or share housing is very popular for Curtin students. Most often this sort of accommodation is offered by students who have a spare room in their house.

 Almost always room rental means getting your own furnished room. Most people in Perth expect to have their own room, so there are not many sharing room options.

The average price for a furnished room near the university is $170 per week. The range is from $140- $220 per week. Do not expect to find many cheaper options than this. The rent does not usually include expenses such as electricity, water or gas.

Please note. We are experiencing a number of students who have rented rooms or properties without seeing them first. It is extremely risky to rent a room without seeing it yourself. We highly recommend that you do not do this.
