Living and Housing in Manly
Accommodation in Manly
International College of Management, Sydney (ICMS)
Manly and the surrounding suburbs are among the most popular neighborhoods in Sydney. Students have a variety of accommodation options to choose from. Be it a life on campus, accommodation in Manly, a host family, a room for rent or a shared flat with fellow students – everyone can find the right accommodation.
Living On-Campus at ICMS
During your study abroad semester in Australia you have the option to live on the impressive ICMS campus. Even Jay Gatsby, better known as Leonardo DiCaprio, has visited the ICMS castle to shoot his movie “The Great Gatsby”. On-Campus, you will live together with other international students and get to know them better.
Campus-based students enjoy a fantastic lifestyle with all meals included, wireless internet, 24-hour access to computer labs, and the luxury of staying close to class and, of course, the world-famous Manly Beach. The rooms are equipped with a bed, desk, wardrobe and Wi-Fi. The bed linen is provided and the rooms cleaned and vacuumed once a week by cleaning personnel.
Each floor is equipped with a kitchenette, shared showers, washrooms and ironing facilities. In addition, there is an ICMS student on each floor working as residential assistant, who will gladly help with any problems concerning the accommodation.
You can choose between a single, double, twin, triple or quad room, depending on your budget, location and availability. Shared rooms are same-sex and often shared by people from different cultural backgrounds. On campus, accommodation is very popular and places fill up quickly. Therefore, we recommended that you apply for a place for on-campus housing as soon as possible.
The current fees for 2019 accommodation can be found here:

Staying with a host family
Homestays are a great way for students to get up close and personal with Australian life. Staying with a host family provides an opportunity for international students to improve their English language skills and gain insight into Australian culture and lifestyle. The experience can be very rewarding and many lifelong friendships can emerge.
ICMS recommends that students use the Australian Homestay Network (AHN) to find a host family. AHN is Australia’s best-known and largest homestay provider and is committed to making every experience safe and memorable for hosts and guests. AHN will bring together every student with a host family that lives close to ICMS. The host family will offer a private bedroom and will help students learn local transport systems and local customs.
