    I've applied for ANU and have applied for the halls (1st Fenner, 2nd B&G, 3rd Bruce) however when I checked the status of my application online at the top it said Bruce.
    I was wondering whether this means that I've missed out on Fenner and B&G, does anyone know?

    You get a quota. If you live on campus you can tap into ANU's quota, otherwise you have to use the pre-paid system. The prices are coming down though.

    B & G = 7c/mb
    Fenner = 15c/mb (I think, might have come down)
    Johns = 4c/mb (at least it's rumoured they're heading that way)
    Bruce = 12c/mb

    Yeah, Johns are 4c I think. I think that it's the same at all colleges - they don't charge anything for ANU sites visited.

    Yeah, I'll be living on government handouts for a while too, until I can find a job or two down there.

    You're actually obligated to take the accomodation no matter what. Acceptance of the application is an automatic contract, viable for 3 years. Were you not to provide rent, then legal action would be inevitable with considerable fines and a possible jail sentence.
    Hope this helps.

    I know this may seem like a stupid question, but in regards to bedding etc do you need to bring your own:

    Pillows, mattresses, blankets etc?

    Rooms have chairs and other stuff right?

    yeah... all you need is stuff to go on the bed.. but even then I think you can get stuff from the college.. but it would be pretty basic. Just to confirm.. yes there is a bed in all rooms, yes they have a mattress on them.

    Yeah, chairs, trash can, some are lucky enough to have an extra book shelf, and umm... all have desk lamps and stuff.

    Oh, depending on government support, of course! It's Canberra, the home of bureaucratic government offices! *huggles Centrelink*

    But in all seriousness, there's quite a bit of retail work around, so I understand it's *reasonably* easy to find a job...

    er, I realise this sounds a little stupid, but they don't take in your race when you apply for jobs and that do you? I'm asking this because in whoop whoop it's much easier to work at azn takeaways and resturants etc than anywhere else...but the pay is shit and you have to compete with non azns to get the jobs.

    bruce is the cheapest catered hall...hmm.

    Its easy.

    I lined up one before I arrived and started before I started uni.

    I have since changed jobs because I was offered a position at another company. I also started a second job early in first semester.

    I have been offered but declined several other jobs because of distance and time issues.
    Unless otherwise specified all views expressed are my own.

    Regards.
    I lived at Ursies for a couple of years. Each floor of each block has male & female bathrooms, w/ two toilets and two showers each. With 24 students per floor, you end up sharing shower and toilet with 5-6 other people, but it's cleaned every weekday so it's not too bad. I got pretty homesick in my first year away from home, but I found the Ursies environment to be warm and welcoming. Open day for ANU should be late August I think, you should go check out all the residences before you make a decision. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

    Does one automatically get an allowance from the government if staying in one of the halls, or is it Youth Allowance where you have to work for it beforehand?

    Ugh, my long reply was wiped. Bugger.

    No you don't. You CAN apply for a bursary either from the hall you're staying at or the university. Bursaries from the halls are usually in the area of $500 and the bursaries offered by the university are (or so I've heard) a little more generous. To receive a bursary you have to demonstrate that you're going through some sort of financial hardship and you must provide a reason as to why you hadn't planned for said hardship to occur.

    or is it Youth Allowance where you have to work for it beforehand?
    I have to say this to everyone who asks about youth allowance... Working is only one way in which you can apply for youth allowance. The forms etc are all available on the Centrelink website and I advise that you look into them.

    There are a few other ways in which people (who aren't in unique situations) can get youth allowance, particularly under the "unreasonable to live at home" clause (btw, wanting to go to university in a different state is not sufficient).
