St Lucia - Suburb Guide
Sitting in a bend of the Brisbane River, St Lucia hosts University of Queensland's main campus. The high density residential properties near the river get river and city views, while the lower-density centre of the suburb is cool and leafy.
A wide range of housing options are available. Affordable share houses are around and highly sought after. There are many 1- and 2-bedroom apartments, suitable for students looking for more private living arrangements. There are several large purpose-built student accommodation buildings if you're looking for predictable, high density living.
Living in St Lucia means you're a comfortable walking distance from campus, meaning you will be able to save on transport costs. This somewhat offsets the slightly higher rental costs you can expect to pay for living close to campus.
