Use the Green Bridge to cross the Brisbane River at Dutton Park and walk to classes at University of Queensland’s St Lucia in 10 minutes. Dutton Park train station is a couple of minutes’ walk from your home and from there you can be at South Bank in just over 5 minutes, or the CBD in under 10. Several bus routes pass through your neighbourhood. Take the bus or train to get to class at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in under half an hour.
Come home from university and drop by the local shops to pick up necessities or grab a takeaway meal from a local restaurant. Back at Fenton Street you’ll be sharing a five-bedroom, fully-furnished home with friends. Drop your shopping bags on the kitchen island, then make yourself a coffee in the open kitchen as you unpack. Sit in the lounge and chat about your day, or get some fresh air sitting on the outdoor patio.
When it’s time to get on with some study, return to your single or double room and work at your desk. Keep all your clothes in order in your built-in wardrobe. You won’t have to worry about cleaning, as a monthly cleaning service is included in your rent. There’s also a monthly linen service, where your bed sheets will be collected and returned to you clean and fresh. All you’ll have to do is make your bed. Your rent includes utilities and gardening, as well as internet, so you can research and Skype family back home without worrying about the bills.
