Rooming houses provide homes for Victorians who have been homeless or who are not able to live in private rental accommodation.
We are making sure that rooming houses are safe places to live.
In 2016 we introduced the Rooming House Operators Act. People who run rooming houses must apply for a licence. Rooming house operators must also follow standards of hygiene, safety and security.
We are planning to renovate and upgrade rooming houses. We will be renovating rooming houses owned by the Director of Housing. We will also renovate community housing sector properties.
The Department of Health and Human Services looks after our Rooming House Upgrades.
