How often do I pay my rent?

The easiest way to pay your rent is through our fortnightly direct debit system. We also have full upfront payment options. If you wish to pay the full rent amount in one lump sum, you can do this with a credit or debit card at Reception or by bank transfer. International transfers or credit card payments may result in a surcharge from your bank.

What is a Bond? And how do I pay it?

The bond is a security deposit registered with the appropriate state-based authority and covers any damage you may cause to the room. Don’t worry, this excludes normal wear and tear. You will receive an email 10 days before your contract start date asking you to pay a security deposit through the Resident Portal.

It is refundable at the end of your stay with us if there are no damages, your room is left clean and there is no outstanding rent. You will receive an email when your bond is ready to be returned. Release of your bond from the state-based authority will either be transferred into an Australian bank account of your choice which is the preferred method, or you can arrange for a cheque to be sent to you.

When do I sign my contract?

Would you like an express check-in? If you complete your pre-arrival process before arrival your check-in will only take 10 minutes. If you haven’t completed your pre-arrival process, your check-in could take up to 30 minutes.

What do I need to do to complete an express check in?

Your contract will be available 8 weeks prior to your contract start date via our Resident Portal. Once logged in to the portal, you will be able to review and sign your contract prior to arriving at Scape. Make sure to give yourself enough time to read the contract carefully before signing. Once completed, we’ll send you a copy of the final signed contract via email for your records.

You’ll also need to upload your Confirmation of Enrolment and Photo ID, plus complete your emergency contact and rent payment information.

Do I need to bring my own bedspread, quilt and pillow?

Yes. However, to make life easier, these items may be purchased on our website when booking your room, or via our Resident Portal, and can be ready for you on check-in. They can also be purchased from Reception, subject to availability. Get settled early and purchase your bedding pack to guarantee availability.

How do I buy linen and kitchen supplies in advance?

You can log in to our Resident Portal to buy kitchen and bedding before arriving at Scape. Alternatively, you can email the property directly.

Does Scape Peel have an airport transfer service?

Yes! To arrange a pick-up service from the airport directly to Scape Peel, please visit our Airport Transfer page and complete the form at least 72 hours before your scheduled arrival at the airport. Contact your Scape location for pricing.

Alternatively, all major Australian airports have taxi ranks and dedicated pick-up areas for ridesharing services including Didi and Uber that will take you to any of our buildings. There are also public transport options available. Please refer to the following websites to plan your trip in advance –

What time is check-in at Scape Peel?

Scape Peel will welcome you at any time of day or night.  To assist with a smooth arrival, we ask residents who plan to arrive outside normal business hours (9.00 to 18.00) to inform us by email at least 72 hours in advance. This way we can make sure a Scape team member is available to greet you.

If you arrive outside of normal business hours, you’ll find contact information at the entrance of the building. Your calls will be answered by a friendly team member who will help you check-in.

What goes on in the communal spaces?

Scape Peel features a range of communal spaces available to all residents where you can rest and relax or socialise with friends. These include a private cinema, rooftop lounge and games area, 24/7 gym, study areas and a large communal kitchen. We’ll host resident events in these spaces from time to time, but they can also be booked in advance if you’d like them all to yourself!

Can friends visit?

Of course! This is your home. If you would like to have a guest stay overnight, that is fine too, but you’ll need to be over 18. Unfortunately, overnight guests aren’t permitted in twin rooms, shared apartments or U/18 rooms. There are also a few rules around guests in the property which staff would be happy to brief you on. You will need to register your guest at Reception, so we know who is in the building for security reasons.

Is there a curfew?

We don’t have a curfew for residents over the age of 18.

International residents under the age of 18 must sign a curfew between 9:30pm to 10:00pm. If students miss curfew, our team will follow up with the student and visit their room until they are located to make sure everything is ok. The Next Generation team communicates all curfew breaches to the educational institution on the spot, or the following day, depending on the nature of the breach.
