Student Accommodation (Brisbane)
Are you studying in Brisbane and haven’t decided yet on where to stay? In addition to our great student friendly facilities such as the gym, cinema, study spaces, lounges, games rooms etc, check out these TEN reasons why Student One is the right place for you.
1. Free unlimited internet
Yes it is completely free and you can use as much of our highspeed WiFi as you like. Anywhere and anytime at Student One.
2. Location, Location, Location
You are likely to spend more time in your place of residence than at your place of study. Location is therefore of great importance. With Student One being right in the middle of Brisbane you have everything on your doorstep, including buses that take you to all of the main universities and private colleges. We even have a couple of restaurants in the building plus a small supermarket open from 6am to 10pm, every day, 7 days a week.
3. You choose your dates
Student One gives you the freedom to decide when to check in and how long to stay. Unlike many alternative accommodation providers, we leave that decision up to you. All we ask is that your stay is a minimum of 4 weeks.
4. Book with confidence
when you apply for accommodation with us the process is absolutely FREE and very simple. You do not need to pay for anything until you have had sufficient time to consider the offer we make to you. We also guarantee you an offer within 48 hours, and it is generally a lot quicker than that.
5. Cancellations with no questions asked
if your circumstances change and you can no longer get to Brisbane to stay with us, then provided you give us a 2 weeks-notice before your agreement starts, we will refund all monies paid. If you cancel within the two weeks prior to the commencement of your contract, whereas we will retain the 2 week deposit you will be released from any further obligations.
6. No additional or hidden charges
when you pay the rent to us, there are no additional surprises.
- No inspection fees
- No charges for gas, electricity or water
- No excess uses charges for air-conditioning
- No charges for additional internet
7. Safe and Secure
Your safety is our primary concern, and we mean it. Our buildings and all living areas are electronically access controlled. We also have discreet CCTV surveillance that provide additional peace of mind.
8. Open 365 days of the year with staff on duty 24 hours a day
The multi-lingual team at Student One is on duty 24 hours a day, every day, so you can check in, pay a bill, or seek advice at any time.
9. Upgrade packages
Do you simply want to arrive, unpack and get studying? Then check our bedding packages, cutlery, crockery and other essentials available online for both purchase and hire.
10. State of the art laundry
whereas we are not able to provide someone to do your washing for you, we have done the next best thing and provide, for a moderate fee, access to two spotlessly clean laundries which even send you an email when your washing is done. If there is a mum out there that is worried about the frequency of cleaning we also provide the ability to purchase laundry credits online from anywhere in the world.
By focusing solely on the needs of the students, our flexible and holistic approach delivers a premium student living experience. So whatever question you have about student living in Brisbane, the answer always adds up to One – Student One.
