REGISTER now to win some fantastic prizes at the first Accommodation and Living Fair for international students coming up this March! Best of all… it’s free! 


We’re pleased to announce the launch of Melbourne’s first Accommodation and Living Fair for international students!

Taking place on March 12 at The Couch (69 Bourke St, Melbourne) from 5pm to 8pm, the event will bring to life different aspects of making Australia your home away from home.

Stalls and activities planned for the evening will include both the “serious stuff” and the fun parts of living independently.

You can explore your accommodation options, be equipped with must-know information about your rights when it comes to renting, and learn how to stay safe at home.

Additionally, you can find out how to whip up a fast and simple meal at home, and also pick up useful tips and ideas on home decoration, life hacks and DIY projects to try.

The event is indeed free and open to all international students, but the perks that come with registering your attendance will be well worth the effort. Students who register will be in the running to win prizes including:

  • A delicious $69 Classic Box from Hello Fresh
  • Cookbooks to bring your culinary skills to the next level
  • Movie vouchers to catch your favourite film this season
  • A one-month pass to Arrow on Swanston’s Fitness Centre (gym and pool)
  • And more!

The Accommodation and Living Fair will take place on March 12 from 5pm to 8pm at The Couch, 69 Bourke St, Melbourne. The fair is jointly hosted by the City of Melbourne, The Couch, the Australian Federation of International Students (AFIS) and Meld Magazine.
