It is the responsibility of both the accommodation provider and the student to ensure the suitability of the accommodation.

Box Hill Institute of TAFE will not be liable or held responsible in any way in relation to matters arising directly or indirectly from the provision of information via the Accommodation Register to any accommodation seeker or provider.
