About Us

There are approximately 74,500 students living in Colleges, Halls and Residences which are either owned or affiliated with Australian and New Zealand Universities or privately run, a large professional student housing workforce exists to support these students.

AACUHO is the premier professional organisation for all who work in Post Secondary Education Accommodation, in any capacity, in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.

The core purpose of AACUHO is to:

  • support and encourage the professional development of our members
  • support and facilitate quality standards of service delivery in student housing
  • facilitate sustainability of student housing as an industry
  • advocate for the economic and pedagogical benefits as a result of standards in student housing services.

Our vision is to be recognised as the body that sets the standards for student housing in Asia Pacific.

We do this through our annual conference, our networking events held throughout the year, our collaborative partnerships and by providing a range of resources for our members to access.

AACUHO recognises the important role you play as a student housing professional and the contribution you make to the overall student experience. As professionals in this field our roles are diverse, challenging and importantly, very rewarding. AACUHO can provide a valuable support network by putting you in touch with other members and offering professional development opportunities.
