Your Rent Includes

What does your rent include?

Your rent includes gas (hot water), water and a supplied allocation of electricity for all metered rooms.

What is the supplied allocation of electricity? please read below...

Varsity Towers has introduced pre-paid electricity meters into all rooms to ensure we maintain an energy efficient and environmentally friendly building.

All residents renting through VT Management Pty Ltd will be given a supplied allocation of electricity on their arrival. The supplied allocation will be 2Kwh* of electricity, per day, for the booked duration of their stay. 

When tenants arrive they will be given a 20 digit token (code #) to activate the power supply meter located in your room. This will credit the meter with 2kWh* of electricity for each day that the tenant is due to stay (eg. 15 week lease is 105 days x 2kWh*/day = 210kWh* that is credited to the meter).

The meter located in the room has an LCD screen that will count backwards from the credited amount. It will clearly show the current electrical usage and the balance remaining. The meter will also warn you by displaying an exclamation mark (!) and a red LED light that flashes in accordance with your consumption (the more electricity you use the more it will flash).When your credit is running low, the exclamation mark comes on, giving you ample time to purchase more electricity should you use all of your fair allocation.

You are able to purchase more electricity 24/7, either by phone, internet portal, or a payment kiosk located at Level 1 Reception, Varsity Towers.

The allocation of electricity has been calculated using the table below for a studio room*:
