Iglu is a great living option for students as it provides multiple study spaces and communal spaces. The gym is also available for residents to exercise and most importantly, it’s free of charge.

Living in one of the most student-friendly cities in the world, Melbourne still reminds me of my hometown in India. It’s miles outside my comfort zone but Iglu helps it retain that warm touch of home.
Abir, India

The apartments are really comfortable, the facilities like the common areas, the gym, the study rooms are really nice and convenient but most importantly, the staff at Iglu are really amazing!

My favourite thing about Iglu is that it feels like home and it is very safe here. My words of wisdom to future Iglu residents is to love life, and make sure you enjoy whatever you choose to do.
