Why Choose Iglu

Iglu is so much more than just a place to live. Here are some pretty cool reasons why joining the Iglu family will be the best choice you can make to enhance and support your student experience.


Design is our fundamental difference. While each Iglu property is unique in character, they are all devised with intentional common goals – to maximise the available space, harness the natural light and elevate traditional student living to a whole new level. Sleek interiors and contemporary touches lift the ordinary to the original. Social spaces and study areas are innovative and cutting-edge, thoughtfully planned out with flexibility and recreation in mind to allow you to select your individual living and study experience. Each building is purpose-built for a community, to be enjoyed and shared. If you love design, Iglu is a place you’ll love to call home.


Cool design is just the beginning. At Iglu, we take safety seriously and always want you to feel secure in your home. In addition to offering 24/7 security, our friendly team and Resident Leaders – appointed onsite students providing after-hours support – are always available to make your wellbeing and safety an absolute priority. With a comprehensive program of social, academic, sporting, well-being and cultural events all available at your fingertips, you are guaranteed to have a truly memorable time as part of the Iglu community. There is no pressure to engage, but rest assured there is always an opportunity to be active and always someone interesting to meet along the way, as you balance out your academic and social schedule.


With just one simple all-inclusive weekly fee, managing your budget while you study is made easier. At Iglu, in addition to fully-furnished living spaces and use of all communal facilities, your rent is inclusive of utilities (water, electricity and gas), unlimited high-speed wireless internet, regular events and access to 24/7 onsite support.,

To help you get a Cool Start to your day, Iglu Brisbane City, Iglu Kelvin Grove and Iglu Melbourne City serve complimentary weekday in-house breakfasts.



At Iglu we pride ourselves on placing you in fantastic locations that make student living that much more accessible.

Brisbane: Iglu has two super-convenient locations. Brisbane City sits in the heart of the CBD (close to many universities and colleges, such as QUT Gardens Point, the University of Queensland and Griffith University) and Kelvin Grove is literally opposite the QUT’s Kelvin Grove campus. It’s hard to live any closer to the action.

Melbourne: Iglu Melbourne City enjoys a prime location on Franklin Street, across the road from the iconic Queen Victoria Market, students can easily walk to RMIT, Melbourne University and many other city-based campuses. Iglu South Yarra is the perfect example of location by design. It is a short 2-minute walk to trains, and links students to the CBD and Monash University’s Caulfield Campus (8 minutes in either direction).

Sydney: All five options for incredible student accommodation are in close proximity to nearby universities including Macquarie University, University of Sydney, University of Technology Sydney and many other colleges. Enjoy lower commuting times and life in the heart of the city.

If you are looking for more than just a place to live while you study in Australia, stay cool at Iglu.
