STUDENT ACCOMMODATION AT UQ
We provide distinctively different and uniquely beneficial residential accommodation for students attending UQ or other nearby educational institutions.
On this section of our website, you’ll find detailed information on our student accommodation, videos, room plans and photos, pricing comparison charts. Once you’ve seen all the extra inclusions at IH you’ll fully appreciate the tremendous value we offer.
We can accommodate 242 students across our catered and self-catered options with each resident having their own spacious individual room.
International House provides student accommodation in 11 tower buildings loosely inspired by the architecture of Oriental pagodas. They are designed to catch maximum airflow and natural light and create a sense of sanctuary that is integrated with nature. It’s a lovely quiet location, and just a 5 minute walk to UQ.
Each tower block has its own common room, complete with a kitchenette, dining room and lounge. This provides a perfect study group spot or place to hang-out. To see more take a video tour.
There are 5 floors to each tower with 4 bedrooms on each level. This fosters stronger connections with your immediate neighbours. Plus, your neighbours are likely to be from different nationalities, giving you the opportunity to develop greater cultural understanding and international connections. Explore the rooms here.
Connecting the towers are a series of elevated boardwalks that help create a truly relaxed resort-feel amongst the palms and flowering frangipanis. Queensland is famous for its year-round outdoor lifestyle with mostly warm days, blue skies and green gardens. With fast WiFi throughout the complex, some students choose to take their laptops outside to study under the shade of the trees.
The impressive breezeway greets you upon arrival and wraps around the office leading to our air-conditioned dining hall. For special occasions we utilise I-Plaza (outdoor timber deck) for canapés and often have BBQ’s on G-lawn, making the most of our much-envied semi-tropical climate.
