Ground works are underway and JCU is looking forward to welcoming the first students to new on-campus accommodation in Cairns in 2018.

The first stage will house 300 students, and there are plans to expand to 1,000 in the longer term.

The seven storey, 9,450m2 complex will offer a mix of accommodation options including studio apartments with en suite bathrooms. The development will also include a ground-floor retail space.

The Chairman of Advance Cairns, Trent Twomey said the construction of on-campus accommodation at the Smithfield campus was a key priority for the city.

“JCU is planning exciting projects for the campus, such as the Cairns Innovation Centre, and on-campus accommodation is an integral part of the continued growth of JCU in Cairns.”
