Intro

Shafston provides high quality student accommodation in the river-city suburb of Kangaroo Point.

The property is conveniently located adjacent to Shafston College and is only 3.5kms away from the Queensland University of Technology Gardens Point Campus and a short CityCat ferry ride to the heart of Brisbane CBD.  A wide range of public transport options are on the propertys doorstep which gives residents convenient access to almost all of Brisbane.

The free Cityhopper Ferry runs every 30 mins from  nearby Dockside and Thornton Street Ferry terminals, to the City & South Bank. QUT is just a short walk over the Goodwill Bridge from the Maritime Museum terminal just 2 stops from Thornton Street. Alternatively the CityCat Ferry departing from nearby Mowbray Park Terminal runs directly to the QUT Gardens Point Ferry Terminal.

Shafston is a 12 storey building with secure swipe card access to individual floors featuring 170 individual studio apartments. Whilst the majority of our accommodation operates under a 6 or 12 month lease, we do have a small number of rooms that are available in twin-share or triple share for short term accommodation.  These shorter term options are ideal for those completing intensive English language courses or undertaking a research project at one of Brisbanes Universities. Each apartment has its own bathroom and kitchenette and their layout makes all rooms suitable for individuals, couples or friends wishing to share. All of the apartments are fully furnished and equipped for student living. Other apartment features include free WiFi internet (8 GB per port most rooms have 2 ports), river and city views, some with balconies, and air-conditioning.

The property also boasts a caf on the ground floor, a large modern residents gym, and a residents common area which includes a large screen TV. Students love living here!
