In Victoria, rooming houses must by law register with their local council and provide accessible accommodation features. So if you're looking to stay in a rooming house, make sure they comply with both of these regulations. You can find out more by checking with the local council, searching the Consumer Affairs Victoria Rooming House Register or by contacting us through ask.Monash.
