Townsville and Cairns are large regional cities with plenty of accommodation options for students. Private rental options (off campus) include houses, townhouses, modern flats and apartments.
Townsville has on-campus, purpose-built student accommodation for 1,400 students in halls of residence or colleges.
Cairns has purpose-built, catered student residences opposite the campus for around 240 students.
You’ll need to decide on what is right for you. For example, do you want meals provided or to cook for yourself; do you need Internet access in your own room; do you want to be close to campus or close to the city centre?
The JCU Accommodation Service assists students to find suitable accommodation. Visit the Service online to find out more.
