So you are studying at FedUni Brisbane, right in the heart of the city. Great choice! There is really only one thing that can make your study experience even more unforgettable. Living at Student One!
Don’t just study in the city. Live in the city and enjoy every moment of it. No long commutes in overcrowded buses or trains. No suburban life that comes to a halt when the sun goes down. You are in Brisbane. Discover it. Enjoy it. Here are a few reasons why Student One is the best place to life when studying at FedUni Brisbane.
The Student One residences are located right in the heart of Brisbane’s City Centre, only a short 240m or 3 minute walk away from FedUni Brisbane to either residence - Student One Wharf Street or Student One Adelaide Street. Did we mention the great choice of shopping and dining outlets inside and around both residences? From a supermarket to coffee shops and a range of food outlets, we've got you covered.
Student One offers free unlimited WiFi internet in both of our residences allowing you to study, download material or chat to family and friends back home no matter where you are in either residence. You can have up to 3 devices online at any given time and will never have to worry about any additional cost for internet. Ever.
Our buildings and all living areas can only be accessed with your secure swipe card and we have discreet CCTV surveillance throughout the buildings in addition to our reception being staffed 24 hours a day. Every day.
How does bean bag cinema, outdoors bbq area, games room, gym and swimming pool sound? Not to forget the study areas, dedicated music rooms, free bikes and play stations to use and the roof top lounge looking over Brisbane! Oh, and what about the bragging rights to be living at the world's tallest student accommodation? Living at Student One means you get it all.
Student One is so much more than a place of residence for students. Thanks to all the little extra details – from a busy social calendar and support staff available 24/7 to Charlie the dog and washing machines that email you when your laundry is done – Student One is a home away from home, where many make friends for life.

“My daughter was one of the first students to take up residence in Student One on Adelaide Street and resided there for 2 1/2 years. The convenient, central position was a big factor in choosing Student One with buses stopping both ways just outside the door erasing the safety issues of night classes. Everything she needed was within walking distance including the Queen Street Mall being 5 minutes walk away. From there you can access buses and trains to anywhere in Brisbane. The facilities were well maintained and maintenance issues dealt with promptly. Staff were always very helpful and friendly. Security was also a big factor and having a staff member at reception 24hrs a day was always reassuring. My daughter enjoyed her stay. As A parent I would highly recommend Student One to other students. It just makes living and studying in Brisbane easy."

Student One was the right decision. As a parent, I never worried about my daughter's safety, given its excellent location, around the clock front desk, and the services available right on the premises. The proximity to uni (QUT), groceries, restaurants, etc. was ideal and made our daughter's daily life that much easier. Any questions we had prior to leasing from Student One were promptly answered and the staff was extremely responsive to questions we had during and after our daughter's return home. JW

That's an excellent apartment. Everyone are cheerful, the reception staff give me lots of help! The apartment has a lot of activities that you can join. For me, I just take 15-20 mins to UQ by bus. It's convience to myer center and david jones which is close to us. If you like to going to supermarket that coles and woolies near us too.
