As University students, our biggest challenge is finding the right accommodation…the perfect one that ticks all boxes from being close to Uni, public transport, food places and other entertainment options within city. Well look no further, UniLodge in South Bank is the most convenient and affordable student accommodation you can find in Brisbane.

Located in the heart of Brisbane, this student accommodation is close to major universities like UQ with trains, buses and ferries only a few walks away. The Brisbane CBD is just across the river and being in South Bank itself, the parklands with gardens and pools, is right on your doorstep…how cool is that? Also, do not forget the South Bank cinema and restaurants and bars which are just around the corner to keep your movie craze and tummies satisfied.

UniLodge has various room options which range from: studio apartments, 6-bedroom multi-share apartments, 2-bedroom apartments and studio twin share, each fully-furnished with beds, built in wardrobe/storage, study desk and chair, appliances including fridge/freezers, microwaves and cook tops and other unique features.

It also offers car parking, laundry and secure bike storage together with comfortable resident lounges, courtyards with BBQs, game room, theatre room, gourmet kitchen and dining area. There’s also a well-equipped gym for all gym lovers and study rooms are available on each level as well so you can socialise and make friends while you study.

The staff at UniLodge run events every week whether it be family dinners, rock climbing and picnics or even study and UniLife sessions, UniLodge has you covered! One such grand event was their 2nd Birthday. My friend Arsy and I were a part of the celebrations at the lodge and it was one fun night!

We checked into the lodge on the afternoon of the party and festivities had begun as soon as we entered the doors. The lovely staff welcomed us with a pack containing student essentials, a t-shirt and our very own UniLodge teddy! We got a private tour by one of the friendly staff members and were taken to the twin share king single room where we stayed for the night. It included all essential features and was cosier than my actual accommodation (don’t tell my landlord!).

The party started around 7pm that night with activities including mechanical bull rides, adult bouncy castles, live DJ’ing, pool, other games and even photo booths. Arsy and I got to meet other residents staying at UniLodge, had a chat about University life and being international students and exchanged contacts to meet up at Uni…it was a night where I expanded my social circle and made new friends for sure. Dinner was FREE KFC and Domino’s Pizza…I mean what more could you ask for? We sat down and had a good feed, danced to some good jams and had our turns on the bull, the bouncy castle and even the photobooth. The night ended around 9pm and students later headed out to continue to celebrate the end of exams and the semester…

UniLodge is the ideal student accommodation whether you’re a domestic or international student coming to Brisbane… far from home. It has everything a University student could ask for and I’d definitely recommend it to every single on of you. And with My UQU Rewards, you can get the 6-bedroom share for a full year (12-month lease) for $259, all including unlimited access to most of the features. Go check out their website for full details:
