Lifestyle and location
That’s what we are all about at Iglu Student Accommodation.
Purpose built for students, Iglu offers the supportive benefits of student accommodation in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney along with the flexibility of an off-campus lifestyle.
This is combined with fresh, fully-furnished living spaces, fabulous communal areas, a safe and secure environment and a jam-packed events programme.
Like a social household? Choose a share apartment, with your own secure bedroom and private or shared bathroom. Prefer your own space? A studio or one bedroom apartment with a private bathroom is the perfect option.
When you live at Iglu, you don't just get an apartment, you get loads of cool extras. Take a look at our awesome facilities and you will see that we have thought of everything.
At Iglu, we are all about location. That’s why all Iglu properties are within easy reach of major universities and colleges, transport, shopping, eating, fitness and entertainment.
We have five unbeatable locations for student accommodation in Sydney – Iglu Broadway, Iglu Central, Iglu Central Park, Iglu Chatswood and Iglu Redfern – and two great options for student accommodation in Brisbane – Iglu Brisbane City and Iglu Kelvin Grove. The first phase of Iglu Melbourne City, our first property in Melbourne, is now open, meaning students have even more cool options to choose from when they study in Australia.
Have a look around, you will see that it's pretty cool to live at Iglu.
At Iglu we consider the safety and security of all students living with us to be the highest priority.
Our teams are trained in emergency and evacuation management, Senior First Aid and Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S). They also undertake Iglu specific training to ensure a prompt and organised response to any situation.
All of our student accommodation properties in Sydney and Brisbane have:
- CCTV cameras installed throughout the building common areas, entry points and hallways, which operate 24 hours a day.
- All buildings and apartments operate on an electronic swipe card system. Access to your bedrooms is by either swipe card or a lockable door. Either way, it designed to ensure you feel safe and secure.
There is an Iglu team member onsite and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide students living with us support and assistance at any time.
We offer the simplicity of one weekly rental fee, with lots of extras included, to make budgeting a breeze.

Students helping students. 24 x 7, there is always someone here for you.
Resident Leaders (RLs) are students who live onsite, employed by Iglu to offer after hours support, run activities and help create a great atmosphere.
This is one of the unique advantages of living in student accommodation. The RLs are always available for residents to talk to about personal issues or any daily stresses. They are trained in a number of areas including senior first aid and emergency management.
They also work with the Iglu team to organise a jam-packed event programme that aims to bring residents together, increase cultural awareness, encourage learning and teach new skills – all in a fun and supportive environment. These events include:
- Academic (e.g. spelling bees, CV writing skills)
- Cultural (e.g. city tours, international food nights)
- Social (e.g. movie nights, BBQs)
- Wellbeing (Pilates, boxercise, R U OK days)
You can check out a full sample of the cool events and activities here.
