Griffith University Housing Information
Return to Australia Housing Information Page
Griffith University’s four campuses offer very different living environments for students. While housing at Griffith can provide opportunities to meet other students, Arcadia University also encourages students on the Gold Coast and at the QCA to get involved in campus life in order to meet Australians and more fully enjoy their time in Queensland.
Student Apartments - Urbanest
Urbanest student apartments are located in Southbank, which is Brisbane's urban playground with beautiful parklands and art galleries near by, and it is just a short stroll over the river to the CBD. It is an ideal location for all students as it is near all of Brisbane's major Universities and it is close to a number of different public transport options.
Students will be housed in fully furnished, self catered apartments. Each apartment houses five or six students in private bedrooms, complete with their own bathroom and study area. Students will share a communal living and kitchen area. Students will be provided with their own linen and an internet package upon arrival. Students will have access to many events throughout the semester designed to help them make new friends and get to know Brisbane better.
Gold Coast Campus
Student Apartments - Griffith University Village
Located five minutes from campus in lush native bush land, GUV opened in 2007 and provides accommodation for students in fully-furnished apartments. Each apartment houses five students in private bedrooms with a shared living room, two bathrooms and fully equipped kitchen. Among the village's amenities are a café, pool and general store.
Nathan and Mt. Gravatt Campuses
For students attending the suburban Brisbane campuses of Nathan and Mt. Gravatt, on-campus accommodation is available in catered residential colleges or self-catered college flats. A free shuttle bus runs between campuses, giving students the flexibility to select housing options on either campus. The bush-like campuses offer an excellent opportunity to meet and interact with Australia students. Alternatively, students seeking a more independent style of accommodation may opt to live with other Arcadia program participants in Student Apartments in Brisbane, a half hour commute from campus.
Residential Colleges - Bellenden Ker College
Located on the Nathan campus, students are housed 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.
Residential Colleges - Mt. Gravatt College
The only residential college on the Mt. Gravatt campus, Mt. Gravatt College provides accommodation for students in single bedrooms with combined bathroom facilities for men and women.
