Cairns Student Lodge

Cairns Student Lodge (CSL) fully renovated, purpose built, providing fully catered and serviced accommodation, just a five-minute stroll from the JCU campus, 10 minute drive to Aviation Australia and 20 minute drive to CQUniversity.

Set amongst lush tropical gardens with great facilities such as a resort style swimming pool, volleyball court, BBQ and 24-hour DIY kitchen amenities, CSL enables students to enjoy the relaxed, community lifestyle.

Research has proven that students living in purpose built student accommodation can increase their academic performance by one grade, and reduce student dropout.

Each of the 76 units feature three private, air-conditioned, lockable bedrooms which include either a double bed or single bed (with mattress protector), desk, office style chair, shelves, desk draws, wardrobe and ceiling fan as well as free Wi-Fi.

As all meals are provided in the student dining hall, the unit does not feature a full-sized kitchen, however, a kettle, microwave and a fridge and freezer are included. Oh, and the units are serviced weekly as well!

The study areas and engaging social spaces contribute to the communal vibe where you can get to know the other residents and make lifelong friends. Alternatively, take advantage of the many lodge excursions and activities.

Prices start from $295 per week (including all meals).
