Why Us

Why stay with us? Because we’re not like every other student accommodation.

Our student accommodation facilities are different because of one essential thing:
We are a family-run operation, which means we welcome our students as if they were part of our family too.
It’s the support, the security, the connection and the friendships that you will treasure most during your stay with us.
And then, of course, we have fantastic facilities, walkability to the University of Queensland, and a whole lot more!




Helpful on-site staff ensure you help with making your stay as comfortable and pleasant your stay at our home-away-from-home.

Friendly atmosphere with students from many different cultures and backgrounds.


Study in a friendly and supportive environment with access to great facilities.

Students away from home need extra support. We can assist in connecting our students with friendly local support organisations and UQ counselling services.


Stroll to your classroom without breaking a sweat


Put away your bus pass – you won’t need it when you stay with us! Both our facilities are less than one kilometre from the University of Queensland.

We are passionate about helping our student’s to thrive

That means taking care of mind, body and soul. At The Study Lounge, our team are dedicated to giving every student in our care a positive, rewarding and succesful learning experience.


We encourage students to enjoy our amenities, work out in our in-house gym, play billiards or ping pong with your friends or relax in our cinema. Our accommodation is designed to give students the space to unwind and relax when they need to, and study in peace.

Community spirit

Our student’s say the biggest impact of their stay at The Study Lounge was the warmth and inclusive spirit that we have developed. For young people living away from home, sometimes for the first time, feeling like part of a family is intrinsically important to their study journey.

Help for students when they need it

Being away from home and undertaking tough studies can be challenging. We’ve built a strong support network for our students, ranging from simple at-home help from us, through to refering students to professional support services.
All students studying at the University of Queensland have access to six months’ of counselling services, which we can organise if needed.

We take new students under our wing

When our students first arrive, we team them up with Greeters, a fantastic free service that gives fun, guided tours through Brisbane so new students can start to feel at home quickly. It also helps them to feel confident in their surrounds and aids a sense of independence.
Our regular ‘Get To Know You’ breakfast feasts are another way of embracing new students into The Study Lounge family. And of course, we’re always here to help and have a chat!
