TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR STUDENTS USING GRIFFITH UNIVERSITY’S OFF-CAMPUS ACCOMMODATION LISTINGS WEBSITE

Purpose

This Accommodation Listings Website is for members of the public to list available properties, and for Griffith students to view available properties. Use of this webpage outside of these terms is not permitted.

Information for students

Griffith University is committed to promoting equal opportunity and maintaining an environment that is free from harassment, bullying and unlawful discrimination. Consistent with this policy, our terms and conditions for advertisers using this off-campus accommodation listing website reserves to us the right to refuse to list or, without prior notice to the advertiser, to remove, any existing advertisement that we consider is, or may be reasonably considered to be, harmful, offensive, inappropriate, discriminatory or otherwise objectionable or for any reason we consider it appropriate to do so.

Griffith STRONGLY RECOMMENDS that students familiarise themselves with their legal rights and responsibilities as tenants, particularly as contained in the Queensland Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008. Further information can be obtained from the Residential Tenancies Authority.

Please note the website you are about to register on is hosted on a website external to the University. The University is not responsible for any errors or omissions in listings.

Conditions
1. It is your responsibility to ensure that statements and information provided by an Advertiser are accurate and correct when applying for any accommodation advertised on this website.
2. The University does not arbitrate disputes between advertisers and students (or landlords and tenants). All disputes must be dealt with through the Dispute Resolution Service offered by the Residential Tenancies Authority.
Property Recommended by the University
3. Accommodation providers who have volunteered to have their property inspected by the University may have their property recommended by the University and featured in search results.
4. Any such recommendation from the University is based on the condition of the accommodation at the time of inspection and is only intended to provide an indication of the suitability of the accommodation at that point in time. It is not a guarantee of the condition of the accommodation and should not replace a standard condition report when entering into an agreement with a landlord.
5. Other than a recommendation given in accordance with the above, an advertisement listing carries no statement of endorsement by the University.
No Liability of the University
6. The University can in no way guarantee the suitability of co-tenants, landlords or any other relationship formed or found through the Accommodation Listing Website, and will accept no liability or responsibility for any such interactions.
7. The University accepts no responsibility or liability for the behaviour or correspondence of persons who advertise on this website.
8. The University makes no guarantee that you will find suitable premises as a result of using the University’s Accommodation Listing Website.
9. The other websites linked from this website are not endorsed by the University.
Privacy
