Scheme Details

*All providers please note - ONLY Purpose-Built Student Accommodation Providers that meet ALL mandatory criteria will be considered for this Expression of Interest. If you do not meet the mandatory criteria and wish to submit an unsolicited proposal, please visit this website: https://www.nsw.gov.au/nsw-government/unsolicited-proposals*

The return of international students as soon as possible is vital for retaining jobs in our education sector, and for the economy more broadly. International education is our second largest export, generating $14.6b in exports annually before the pandemic and supporting nearly 100,000 jobs in NSW. We estimate in 2021 we have already lost one third of our international student base.

Returning international students must not displace returning Australian citizens and permanent residents and must not overload stretched Health and Police resources. A solution is required to identify a manageable, ongoing number of regular arrivals outside of the 3,000 per weekly cap that would sit alongside the current quarantine hotel model applying the same protocols and processes and led by NSW Police and Health.

The NSW Government invites Purpose-Built Student Accommodation Providers based in Sydney CBD or Sydney CBD Fringe to submit an Expression of Interest with a view of forming a panel of eligible providers to house international students coming into NSW for the 14-day quarantine period.

The International Student Accommodation Quarantine program is a NSW Police led operation in conjunction with NSW Health and therefore all operational decisions are taken by NSW Police. Proposed properties will be assessed on site by NSW Police, NSW Health and Fire and Rescue for suitability to join the program based on location, footprint and building layout.
