Airport Reception & Accommodation

Airport Reception & Accommodation

Arriving in a new country can be very overwhelming. Stanley College recommends that you take advantage of our Airport Reception and Accommodation Placement Service. This will help you to feel safe and welcome from the moment you arrive.

Airport Reception

You will be greeted at the International Terminal by a Stanley College team member at Perth Airport and transported to your accommodation destination. To book your Airport Reception, please complete the relevant sections in the International Student Application Form or ask admissions for more information.

Accommodation Options

Stanley College can assist students in your search for accommodation such as homestay or shared accommodation. We will ensure that our students have a safe, enjoyable and worthwhile learning experience while living with either a homestay family or at a share accommodation. You will be provided with a fully furnished bedroom with the use of household utilities.


Stanley College will assist students with homestay placements. Homestay hosts may be families, couples, single parents with children or single individuals. Your homestay host will provide you with a safe environment and an introduction to living and studying in Australia. You will gain a deeper insight into Australian culture, as well as the opportunity to improve your language skills.

While living with a local host family or individual, you will be provided with a clean, furnished bedroom with a bed, desk, wardrobe, chair and a study lamp. You will also have access to bathroom and laundry facilities as well as an option for meal services. The minimum duration for homestay is generally 2 weeks. Homestay is organised by AHN.
