Fees and charges 2021

Living on Res not only provides the best possible start to your university experience, fantastic opportunities, invaluable memories and lifelong friends, it also represents great value. All bills are included in the weekly rental- including utilities and internet, so there are no hidden costs.

Why not add a Campus Cash to your accommodation? Campus Cash allows Fedliving Ballarat residents to use their swipey to store credit and purchase food and retail items on-campus at the Hub, Ruby’s and Fedstore. Find out more.
