Your accommodation at Griffith University will depend on the campus you will be attending. Most Arcadia students study at the Gold Coast campus. As you read the information below specific to your campus, please be sure to also review the general Australia accommodation information.
If you are studying on the Gold Coast campus, you will live in Griffith University Village. Located five minutes from campus in lush native bush land, GUV provides accommodation for students in modern, fully-furnished apartments. Each apartment houses five students in private bedrooms with a shared living room, two bathrooms and fully equipped kitchenette. A large, communal kitchen is also available for residents. Among the village's amenities are a café, pool and general store.
If you are studying at the Queensland College of Art or the Queensland Conservatorium, you will live in Urbanest student accommodation. These self-catered apartments are within 5-10 minutes walking distance of your classes and each unit houses five or six students in single bedrooms, each complete with its own private bathroom. You will prepare your own meals in shared kitchen areas. A linen package and internet connection will also be provided for you.
If you are attending the adjacent, suburban Brisbane campuses of Nathan and Mt. Gravatt, you will have the option of living on-campus in a catered residential college or in a student apartment in Brisbane and commuting to class.
Living in a residential college not only provides you the convenience of being close to your classes and other facilities on campus, it also gives you the opportunity to become part of a close-knit community. Colleges offer a range of social events, sports clubs and other organized activities, so you will have the opportunity to meet Australian students. A free shuttle bus runs between the Nathan and Mt. Gravatt.
Located on the Nathan campus, Bellenden Ker College provides accommodation in single bedrooms with separate bathroom facilities for men and women. A full meal plan is included and residents attending classes on the Mt. Gravatt campus during lunch hours can use the Mt. Gravatt College dining facilities.
Mt. Gravatt College provides accommodation for students in single bedrooms with combined bathroom facilities for men and women. A full meal plan is included and residents attending classes on the Nathan campus during lunch hours can use the Bellenden Ker College dining facilities.
If you prefer a more independent style of accommodation, you may opt to live with other Arcadia program participants in student apartments in Brisbane, a half hour commute from campus. These self-catered apartments are close to public buses which will bring you to the Nathan and Mt. Gravatt campuses. Each apartment houses five or six students in single bedrooms, complete with private bathrooms and you can prepare your own meals in shared kitchen areas.
