Subsidised placement accommodation

Three Rivers UDRH provides subsidised accommodation support to nursing, midwifery, allied health and dentistry students undertaking their placements within the Three Rivers UDRH footprint.

We encourage eligible students to utilise Three Rivers UDRH subsidised accommodation during their placement. Student accommodation is available in both on-campus and off-campus locations.

The 2019 Three Rivers UDRH Subsidised Placement Accommodation will be reviewed at the end of this year. The availability of the accommodation and the Eligibility Criteria may be subject to change in 2020.
Eligible students who require subsidised accommodation for placements commencing in 2019 should submit their Accommodation Applications as early as possible.
Students who have confirmed placements commencing in 2020 can apply in 2019 however applications will not be assessed until after the 2019 review. All applications for 2020 subsidised accommodation may be subject to changes in the Eligibility Criteria.
