Study and save with Rent Star Student Accommodation!

What are the room options available?
Rent Star student rooms offer a variety of different types; single, double and queen ensuite rooms. Depending on your needs each room type offers something different. All student/share houses are governed by a set of House Rules and a specific cleaning roster. But be assured each room type provides our students with everything they need for a stable study environment.

Is there a minimum or maximum lease periods?
You can stay at Rent Star student rooms as long as you are studying. Rent Star offers leases ending in June/July or Jan/Feb to coincide the the beginning of each semester. You can also choose to renew the lease if you would like.

Are all the utilities and internet included in the rent?
Yes, the utilities are included in the weekly rental amount. Check in each listings advert as these generally include the electricity, internet and water. Excess consumption can be changed so encourage reasonable use.

Is there a required bond payment and how much is it?
Yes there is a required bond payment, it is equal to 4 weeks rent. This money is held with the RTA (Residential Tenancy Authority) until you vacate your room. Unfortunately we do not accept any rental bond loans/grants. It is returned in full minus any amounts you may owe to Rent Star Property Management, this may include unpaid rent or damages.

Do I have to be a student in order to live at a Rent Star student house and does it matter which University I go to?
Yes, you have to be enrolled in studies to be a tenant with Rent Star and it doesn’t matter which university/institution you go to as Rent Star has properties all over Brisbane to allow easy access to all of them.

Is there a chance that my rent may increase?
Your rental amount will not increase during the term of your lease. Rental amounts may be reevaluated each year depending on the market.
