If living on-campus isn’t really your thing, there are a number of off-campus options available. The off-campus database is updated regularly with houses to rent or share.
There are lots of options available that are close to campus, the beach or town. A number of Homestay programs are available for short and long-term periods. The Homestay program allows students to live and become part of a family network during their stay.
Students at JCU’s Cairns campus also have the choice of off-campus purpose built student accommodation that is a short walk or bicycle ride to the campus at the Cairns Student Lodge. This fully catered, purpose built facility provides student support and a strong sense of community. Ideally located just across the road from JCU Cairns amongst the Campus Shopping Village.
