Centrally located, with an array of restaurants, cafés and green space, Iglu Kelvin Grove is a great place to call home for students who are new to the city. Its close proximity to almost all the important universities is an added benefit of staying here, with QUT Kelvin Grove Campus just a stone’s throw away. James Cook University, Brisbane Campus and Charles Sturt University less than a 25-minutes’ ride by bus making it easier to save time and money on travel.
The area is well-connected via public transport, with the nearest bus stop just a minutes’ walk and QUT Kelvin Grove Bus Station just an 8-minutes’ walk from where you stay. Those of you who are eager to explore the city and make new friends apart from focusing on their studies are in luck as the accommodation is surrounded by various entertainment options such as La Boite at the Roundhouse Theatre and Red Hill Gallery within walking distance.
The students can choose to share their living space with other students can stay in the en-suite rooms and the others who value their privacy can go for a studio. When you find your stomach making weird noises in the middle of a group study session or a movie marathon, just grab a bag of chips from the vending machine or send your friend to get one for you.
There is an onsite gym as well where you can break into a sweat by getting on that treadmill. Also, if you own a bike then there is onsite bike storage available as well where you can park your bike safely and not worry about it being stolen. When it’s time for dinner, you can enjoy the company of the other residents in the shared kitchen while your food is on the stove.
