Accommodation

Spencer Technical College’s Student Support Officers are always available for help with accommodation.

When deciding whether to rent, lease, live in or organise share accommodation, it is wise to be aware of your legal rights and responsibilities. You can find information about Renting and Your Rights and Responsibilities from the Residential Tenancies Authority at http://www.rta.qld.gov.au
