Step outside onto the busy streets of Chatswood and take the short stroll to Westfield mall, where you can take a break to sip creamy hot chocolate at Oliver Brown Belgian Chocolate Café, or walk a little further to explore the upscale stores at Chatswood Chase. Tuck into Malaysian curries and roti at Mamak or try schnitzel and beer at the Bavarian Bier Café, before catching a show at nearby Zenith Theatre or The Concourse. Afterwards, meet friends for drinks on the terrace at the Chelsea Hotel.
It’s a 10-minute train ride to Macquarie University and the Sydney Institute of Business and Technology. Head in the other direction to reach North Sydney in 15 minutes, or stay on the train for five more minutes to get to Sydney’s famous CBD, close to UTS and University of Sydney. If you have a bike, there’s secure storage on-site.
After class, you’ll look forward to getting back to your bright, modern home at Iglu Chatswood. Take in the fabulous views from the rooftop terrace or meet friends for a barbecue in the landscaped courtyard. When the temperature rises, move to the air-conditioned communal lounge area, where you can watch TV, play video games and table tennis, or chat to your new friends and neighbours.
There’s a range of study rooms where you can work alone or in groups, and the cinema room is the perfect place to practise presentations, or simply relax while watching a movie. When you need some peace and quiet, take advantage of the free high-speed Wi-Fi to study in your room.
Whether you live on your own in a studio or with other students in a flatshare, your kitchen is equipped with everything you’ll need to make all your favourite meals. Eat at the spacious dining area with your housemates or invite friends over to show off your new-found culinary skills. After your feast, curl up on the sofa and watch TV, take a hot shower in your private ensuite bathroom, then crash out on your comfy bed.
The convenient on-site laundry makes it easy to keep your clothes clean, and the maintenance team is on hand to deal with any problems. Security is a top priority with CCTV, electronic access and 24-hour assistance.
