Moore is a residential College and ideally all full-time students would live on campus for the duration of their studies. College has housing campuses in Newtown, Croydon Park and Parramatta. It is a requirement that married students live in the Moore College community for a minimum of 2 years.
Married students should therefore apply for College-owned housing. However as there are a limited number of houses available, some incoming first year students will need to make alternative arrangements for their housing. Part time students may apply for accommodation, however they will only be allocated after full time students are accommodated.
Rental prices for married student accommodation vary with the classification of the property. Rental contracts apply. Appointments are necessary to sign leases and pick up keys.
Any queries about accommodation for married couples or families should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 02 9577 9999.
All single students are expected to reside in College accommodation for the duration of their course. We have a variety of accommodation available.
To apply for a residency please email email@example.com or call 02 9577 9999.
Students may move in the week before Orientation starts. However, the College kitchen will not be open and you will need to self-cater. Meals are available for first year students from the commencement of Orientation, starting with breakfast for residents of single accommodation.
Temporary Security Swipe Cards are also provided at this time.
Further information on arrangements is set out in the Guide to John Chapman House.
Accommodation fees for both married and single students is applied weekly and charged fortnightly. Married Students are charged rent for the whole year including vacation periods. Single Students are charged the standard rate during term time and varied amounts during vacation depending on occupancy and meals consumed. Meals are not offered over the Summer Vacation. Students in single accommodation are charged rent from the first day of term or the day they take up residence, whichever is earliest, until the last day of term or the day they leave the residence, whichever is the latest.
All students are given the option of having the fees deducted from their accounts via Direct Debit by completing the relevant finance form. This form is required to be completed every year irrespective of details changing. Students can also choose to pay via Direct Deposit or via BPAY at the Concierge Desk. If students choose to pay via cash, they need to make an appointment with the Finance team. Cash is not accepted at the Concierge Desk. Single students are sent their account statement at the end of each vacation period to pay via direct deposit or BPAY. Amounts owing for vacation periods are not automatically deducted.

Keys and Security Access Cards
All students should arrange to obtain (from the concierge desk) a security access card which gives access to the Mail Room (24/7), the Library (when open), lecture rooms (8am – 4pm) and any other rooms booked. Single residents’ security access cards also give them access to John Chapman House. Students moving into the single residences collect their room keys from the Concierge Desk. There is a separate refundable deposit of $40 for room keys. All keys must be returned in person. Single residence keys to Concierge and Housing keys to the Property Office.
A limited number of lockers are available for hire for a $20 per year fee for students with a physical need or who live away from the College. Lockers will be allocated according to priorities and full time students in the first instance. The lockers are located within the Mail Room in the 19 King St Building. Application for lockers should be made during Orientation.
