Additional Costs

Power

The 2017 rental rates include reasonable usage of power. This is a generous level of power, determined by the usage of prior occupants. In the unlikely event that students' usage exceeds a reasonable level, they will be responsible for paying the additional costs.

Internet

Vistagate is a wireless service provider installed throughout The Cube. It is a prepaid service offering a variety of plans to cater to both individual and group/flat users.

Insurance

The Residential Agreement requires students to have an insurance policy for their contents. Some policies cover the belongings of a student as part of their parents' policy. If this is not the case in your situation, please arrange coverage for your contents yourself. Liability insurance is also a good idea in case you unintentionally damage the building.

Groceries

As The Cube is self-catered accommodation, students need to purchase groceries and prepare their own meals. We estimate that $80-$100 should be sufficient for a week's worth of groceries, however this will depend on personal preferences. You may find your first grocery bills are higher as you set your pantry up.
