The Student ACCOMMODATION Association (SAA) promotes the value of quality accommodation that is provided for the exclusive use of students, to enhance the Australian education experience

The Student Accommodation Association Incorporated (SAA) is the representative body for quality student accommodation providers in Australia. SAA represents the interests of our members and has a profile of being a reputable body of engaged industry participants within the commercial, government and education sectors. We serve to inform policy and planning, pertaining to the definition, assessment and development of student accommodation. We seek to create value to consumer and operators in the sector, and aim to facilitate a considered voice for all participants.

Our Mission

  • To promote the value of quality accommodation which is provided for the exclusive use of students to support and enhance the Australian education experience.
  • To establish and maintain a profile within the commercial, government and education sector as being a reputable body of engaged industry participants who may serve to inform policy and planning, pertaining to the assessment and development of accommodation which is provided for the exclusive use of students.
  • To represent the interests of operators with student accommodation interests in Australia.


Strategic Objectives:

  • Lobby for the introduction of a prescribed student accommodation tenancy document.
  • Lobby for the introduction of a licencing system for providers in the private rental market.
  • Inform the development of the accommodation component to the Federal Government’s International Education strategy.
  • Lobby for changes to planning approval frameworks with a view to distinguishing between projects specifically designed to accommodate students (purpose built) and “mixed-use” residential developments.
