From your three-bedroom apartment at Genesis 1, the bus to Griffith University takes just 10 minutes. Snooze the alarm for a few extra moments in your comfy bed, then choose an outfit from the built-in wardrobe and grab your notes from the bookcase. If you’ve got time to spare before class, text an advance order for iced mocha to local coffee shop Cenzo’s Espresso Bar. On weekends, use the bus stop up the road to get around town, or for the 35-minute journey into central Brisbane.
After class, come home to your fully furnished apartment. Dump your bag on your desk, use the high-speed internet to send a quick email home, then change into your swimsuit for a dip in the pool. Alternatively, choose a book from the recreation room library and catch a tan on the poolside loungers, or get your daily workout with a session in the gym. With your own bathroom and an in-unit washer dryer, you don’t have to wait in line for a shower or walk across town to do laundry.
When hunger strikes, cook dinner in the kitchen or fire up the outside barbecues. Sit down to eat at the dining table, then stack your plates in the apartment dishwasher and spend the rest of the evening watching TV in the air-conditioned lounge. If you feel like a night out, invite your friends over for pre-drinks on the balcony before catching the bus to campus watering hole The Unibar. Watch the game on the widescreen TVs, play a few rounds of pool, or kick back with a pint on the deck.
