JCU Futures Expo – exclusive accommodation offer for Mackay students

For the first time, James Cook University has reserved 50 places in its Townsville on-campus accommodation exclusively for students from Mackay.

To be eligible, students must apply to live on-campus for the full academic year in 2017.

Applicants will be responsible for all relevant fees and charges, but they will have a guaranteed place.

The offer applies to the four University-run residential halls: University Hall, George Roberts Hall, Western Courts and Rotary International House.

Each facility has its own unique vibe and feel, catering to the needs of JCU’s diverse student body.

Prospective students can find out more at next week’s JCU Futures Expo.

The Expo will be a one-stop shop for information about courses and careers, student life, global mobility (student exchange), and enrolments and fees.

People can also talk to current students, find out about study options, other on-campus accommodation and more.

Terms and conditions apply for the Mackay on-campus residential places offer.
