The standard of accommodation in Ho Chi Minh is very good with a wide range of guesthouses, houses and apartments catering to all budgets, depending on location, lifestyle and individual circumstances.
Buddy team is a good source of reference and support for all new international students.
On campus accommodation
On campus accommodation is highly recommended for students who would like to live on the campus and only within 5 minutes to classrooms and other facilities on the campus.
Due to the limited availability, you are encouraged to submit the application for on campus accommodation as soon as you submit the Offer Acceptance to study at RMIT Vietnam.
More information and application can be found on student accommodation page.
Short term accommodation
International students still living overseas can book their temporary accommodation pre-departure (prior to them leaving home) by booking through Agoda or TripAdvisor. Please read carefully the review/evaluation from the past customers for your reference before making the booking.
If you would prefer to prearrange your accommodation from overseas make sure you are aware of the terms and conditions of the agreement. Accommodation providers may charge fees for cancellations or breaking a lease. You will need to check these fees and charges with each provider as they are independent of RMIT. If you have any queries or concerns please email for further support.
Long term accommodation

Three minutes from the campus, Phu My Hung is Ho Chi Minh City’s “satellite city” which is home to international residents from all over the world including Koreans, Japanese, Taiwanese, Americans, Australians and more.
