The Intercollegiate Pool – Your Accommodation Guarantee 

How it works​

When completing your application, you order the Colleges from 1 – 10. Rest assured – whichever College offers you a place, the experience of a lifetime awaits.​

What you can expect​

If your College of first preference is unable to offer you a place for whatever reason, we will pass your application on to the next highest available College on your preference list for consideration via the ‘Intercollegiate Pool’. In our experience, students who receive a university offer do go on to receive a college offer via the Intercollegiate Pool process. This usually occurs over December-January for Semester 1 Entry. 

In the unlikely event that there is no availability in any College, our Accommodation Guarantee will ensure we find you a place in Melbourne close to campus.
