The Students, Learning and Teaching portfolio’s Living and Learning Communities (LLC) have found an innovative way to provide additional accommodation opportunities for students of the Brisbane Campus.
Limited accommodation needs are currently being met by St Margaret’s College (all female) and Raymont Residential College (co-educational). These properties provide fully catered accommodation within a faith-based community for a small cohort of ACU students.
For many other students, however, particularly those from rural and remote communities, finding suitable and affordable accommodation in Brisbane is a challenge.
But, no more. Recently, we have brought onboard a major student accommodation supplier in the Brisbane CBD: Iglu. The property on Mary Street is located within minutes of Central Station and is an easy 35 minute commute to the Brisbane Campus.
Key features of Iglu’s accommodation that students will find attractive are:
Two dedicated floors with secure key access by ACU students and residential staff
A range of room options at discounted rates
Complimentary linen packs, 20GB free internet per month, and free airport pickup
Access to onsite laundry, gym, study spaces, bicycle storage, games room, and the convenience of Brisbane City at your doorstep
Leadership opportunities for students interested in becoming Residential Assistants. These positions will provide liaison between Iglu staff and LLC residents, and will enhance the Residential Life program provided by Campus Ministry, Academic Skills, Libraries, and Weemala to support students’ engagement with LLC principles.
Fully funded residential scholarships available to indigenous students for the duration of their course. These competitive scholarships will be awarded to students displaying leadership skills and a desire to engage LLC members in indigenous knowledge and cultures.
Iglu offers a safe and affordable accommodation solution for students of the Brisbane Campus, underpinned by the Living and Learning Communities’ philosophy which assists students in residence to develop the skills and attributes they will need to contribute to a just and equitable global society.
ACU students can book directly with Iglu Student Accommodation, Brisbane to receive the discounted room rates and be allocated to the ACU floors.
