Destination

Australia’s Gold Coast – it’s one of the best places in the world to live and one of the best places in the world to study.

With pristine golden beaches on one side and World Heritage rainforests on the other, Bond University is just 10 minutes from the surf and less than an hour from Brisbane.

The Gold Coast lifestyle is whatever one wants it to be: We have a vibrant cultural scene with live theatre, art exhibitions and plenty of music venues; or students can hit the surf, join a local sporting team and get active in a hundred different ways. There are nightclubs, theme parks, great shopping centres, multiplex cinemas, wineries and a different restaurant for every night of the year.

Accommodations

Please remember that Northeastern University does not arrange accommodations for you while you are abroad – this is your responsibility. You should follow all of your host institution’s or housing provider’s procedures and deadlines for obtaining housing. Failure to do so may mean you are not able to arrange housing through the program.

  • On-Campus: Bond University offers a range of accommodation options, including a dining plan, that makes it easy to live and study on the Gold Coast. You can live in a private or shared room on campus with meals provided and sharing all the fun of student residence life with your fellow roommates.
  • Off-Campus through Program: If you would appreciate a little more independence, Bond will work with local real estate agents to help you find the perfect rental house or flat off campus close to the university.
