From 21 Herston Road, you can walk to QUT Kelvin Grove in just 15 minutes. Roll out of bed, put the finishing touches to a paper at your bedroom desk, then check your look in the wardrobe mirror before heading downstairs. If you’ve got an hour or two to kill before class, head to Konnigans Café to catch up with your friends over coffee and coconut pancakes. On weekends, take a two-minute stroll to your nearest bus stop whenever you want to explore further afield.
At the end of the day, let the air-con wash over you as you step into the haven of your private, fully-furnished bedroom. Dump your bags on the bed, then gather your washing for a trip to the on-site laundry. If you’re hankering for a post-lecture snack, walk five minutes up the road for supplies from your local supermarket, then fix yourself a tasty meal in the apartment’s open-plan kitchen. Catch up with your housemates around the dining room table, before stacking your plates in the dishwasher.
Later, curl up on the lounge area sofas for a Skype date with your family. With internet and all other utilities included in your rent, you can talk for as long as you like. When you’re done, invite your friends over to watch movies on your TV or, if you’re keen for a night out, freshen up with a quick shower and catch the bus into Fortitude Valley. Try Eleven Rooftop Bar for cocktails overlooking the city or Bloodhound Corner Bar & Kitchen for live blues and craft beer.
