Applicants for long-term accommodation will, as part of lodging a Residence Application Form, need to arrange an appointment for either an in-person or telephone interview with the Residence Manager. Applicants will be required to provide one rental and one personal reference or two personal references with the completed Residence Application Form.
Successful applicants are required, at check-in, to sign an Occupancy Agreement. An Occupancy Agreement, signed by the resident and Residence staff represents a licence to occupy a room within the Residence. This licence is conditional. The conditions under which a resident is granted a licence to occupy a room are outlined in the Resident Handbook. The Occupancy Agreement forms part of the Resident Handbook and the two are intrinsically linked.
