Accommodation and welfare arrangements
Option 1 - Live in Australia with a parent/legal guardian or relative approved by Immigration Department.
For more information about this option please refer to the Immigration Department.
If you are living in Australia with a parent/legal guardian or relative approved by Immigration Department please complete the Under 18 International Students Living with an Approved Parent/Legal Guardian or Relative Notification Form before you accept your offer. You are also eligible to enrol in the UNSW Under 18 Care Program.
Option 2 - Live in Australia unaccompanied by a parent, legal guardian, or a relative approved by Immigration Department and have a Care Arrangement approved by UNSW (fees apply). The Under 18 Care Arrangement includes the Confirmation of Appropriate Accommodation and Welfare (CAAW) letter and the UNSW Under 18 Care Program.
This option requires UNSW to approve the student’s accommodation and welfare arrangements.
Under 18 Care Arrangement with UNSW requires students to:
1. Live in UNSW approved accommodation at either New College @UNSW Campus, Urbanest Darling Square, Unilodge@UNSW or Unilodge@Broadway. (NOTE: BOTH Unilodge@UNSW and Unilodge@Broadway are currently FULL)
2. Participate in the UNSW Under 18 Care Program until you turn 18 years of age.
Students who are accepted for UNSW Under 18 Care Arrangement will receive a Confirmation of Appropriate Accommodation and Welfare (CAAW) letter after they have accepted their offer to UNSW. The CAAW is then presented to the Immigration Department when applying for a student visa.
