With your nearest bus stop just a one-minute stroll from home, you’ll find Brisbane’s major universities are within easy reach. Catch the bus to James Cook University in 13 minutes or walk to class in 24, stopping at Death Before Decafe to collect a coffee on your way. Students attending the Queensland University of Technology can jump on a bus to the Kelvin Grove campus or the Gardens Point campus in half an hour, and Brisbane’s efficient ferry service can have you at the University of Queensland St Lucia campus in 48 minutes. If you prefer to drive, you’ll find plenty of street parking right outside 661 Brunswick Street.
When classes are over, invite your friends back to your newly-renovated share house for a gourmet meal, made from the fresh produce and ingredients you purchased at the Powerhouse Farmers’ Markets. With two communal kitchens to choose from, you’ll always have plenty of space to prepare your meals using all the latest mod cons. Eat at the dining table or sit out on the veranda and enjoy the warm evening breeze as you chat about the day’s adventures.
After dinner, head back to your bedroom to settle in for a study session. Turn on the desk lamp, spread out your textbooks at your desk and connect to the internet to complete your assignments. Once the hard work is out of the way, have a relaxing shower and jump into your comfy bed. With air-conditioning or a fan in your bedroom, you’ll always be assured a restful night’s sleep - even in the heat of summer.
