Iglu Regional Scholarship

2021 Rental Assistance Scholarships Still Available

Support when you need it, independence when you want it.

The last 12 months have been challenging for many of us in Australia and New Zealand. Here in Australia, many communities were already navigating the economic impacts of the drought and bushfires when COVID-19 arrived. To help students across our region experience the coolest student living, we are offering rental assistance through our Iglu Regional Scholarship.

The Iglu Regional Scholarship enables eligible students from Australia and New Zealand to live at any Iglu property in Sydney, Brisbane or Melbourne while they are undertaking an undergraduate degree at an Iglu partner university.

Apply for an Iglu Regional Scholarship and pay as little as $199/week* during your first year of living at Iglu.

“The best part about Iglu is the opportunity to meet new people every day. I also think it serves as a great stepping stone for moving out of home as you have support from staff and other people in the building who are in the same boat as you when it comes to learning how to cook and do laundry.”

No need to wait for your results.

With our ‘No offer, No pay’ option, you can tick finding student accommodation off your list whenever you are ready, you don’t have wait for results or university offers to come out.

If you book to live at Iglu but don’t receive an offer to the university course you apply for, you can cancel your booking without charge. Find out more here.

“Go to events and put yourself out there. I basically had no solid group of friends when I first arrived in Sydney, but after attending events I’ve made great friendships with people I hang out with nearly every day at Iglu.”

Josh, Iglu Broadway
