About Lodging

Foundation Housing provides single people with lodging accommodation.

Residents of lodging houses each have their own secure, furnished room, but share communal facilities like bathrooms and kitchens.
Our lodging accommodation ranges from 14 rooms to 192 rooms and are managed by a Lodging Coordinator and an on-site Caretaker for the larger complexes. Our lodges are either mixed, female or male only.

Lodging house locations

We have lodges across the Perth metro area including Northbridge, East Perth, Mount  Lawley, Subiaco, Bassendean and Fremantle. We also operate a lodge in Broome.
Applicants can apply for a room at either a metro lodge or the Fremantle lodge, or both. The Broome lodge operates a separate wait list.

Who can live in a lodging or shared house?

This kind of accommodation is for single people, aged 24 years old and over who are not able to pay for other kinds of accommodation through their own savings or assets. We offer residents a room at a subsidised rate.

Am I eligible to live in a lodging or shared housing?

You may be eligible if you can answer YES to all of these:
– I have a regular source of income (for example, a Centrelink payment or wages)
– I meet the Community Housing Income and Assets Eligibility Criteria (maximum income $1,970 per fortnight)
– I am at least 24 years old
– I am living in Western Australia at the time of my application and allocation
– I am able to live independently (with external support if required)
– I agree to keep to the terms of the Licence to Occupy and House Rules
– I am willing to use shared facilities

How are rooms allocated?

Rooms are allocated in the order that we receive applications and also depends on suitability of the room.

Can I transfer my room or to another lodging house?

We will support existing residents in moving rooms within our lodging accommodation to make sure we are making the best use of available rooms and to meet the needs of residents. Although the ability to change rooms is important for existing residents, we also need to consider the needs of applicants waiting for accommodation.
There is more information on transfers in our Transfer Policy.
