Iglu Subsidised Rooms in Brisbane

At Iglu Kelvin Grove and Iglu Brisbane City, we are committed to enriching each student’s experience throughout their time at university.

We understand that moving away from home can be a financially stressful time and even an impractical option for some students. To assist these students, we offer a limited number of Iglu subsidised rooms to new applicants from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and University of Queensland (UQ) students whose financial circumstances prevent them from being able to make standard residential payments.


To be considered for one of our subsidised rooms, students must be:

  • Experiencing financial hardship and currently receiving support through:
    • a Centrelink benefit
    • A University scholarship under an equity scheme
  • 17 years of age or over
  • applying to live at Iglu for a minimum of 12 months


To assist us in making a decision in accepting your application please provide as much documentary evidence as possible, the documents may include:

  • Centrelink Income Statement for Youth Allowance, Austudy, Abstudy or other pension or benefit
  • Last 2 Payslips from your employer
  • ATO Notice of Assessment for the most recent financial year
  • Proof of the income of parents/caregivers if financially dependent or living at home
  • Documentation from University showing approval of a scholarship under an equity scheme


The subsidy will be $100 off the standard weekly rental fee, which includes internet, utilities and use of all Iglu facilities. It is available on the following fully furnished room types:

Please review each room page for a complete list of inclusions.


You will need to complete an Application Form and return it by email to the property you are applying for. We will assess your application and contact you to advise you of the outcome.
