Life at Grace

Life at Grace .

Rooms and facilities .

From the moment you step in the gate you’ll find everything you need close at hand, helping you to make the most of life on campus.

What's in your room? .

If Grace is your home away from home, your room is your private sanctuary. It’s been designed and equipped with everything you need to study, hang with friends or unwind and relax.

  • A key or fob locked door, only accessible by you (and select staff in emergencies).
  • A single or long single bed with a pillow, 2 sheets, 2 blankets and a bedspread.
  • A comfortable chair at a long built-in desk for the ideal private study space.
  • Ample storage thanks to a spacious wardrobe, drawers, underbed storage and shelves.
  • Ceiling fans to carry summer breezes through your room, and a room heater for those rare colder Brisbane nights.
  • A desk light, over-bed light, room light and power board.
  • Large mirror and cork noticeboard.

Personalise your room your way with posters, hangings and other personal items.

Your choice of room .

Grace offers two types of rooms at different price points; Standard Rooms and Ensuite Rooms. Both rooms have the features listed above, the only difference is bathroom setup.

Standard Rooms share fully renovated, light and airy shared bathrooms, with spacious private cubicles. Shared bathrooms are cleaned by the wonderful college housekeeping staff once per week.

Sharing not your style? For an additional cost you can request an Ensuite Room, with its own compact bathroom and shower. You’ll be responsible for keeping your bathroom clean and tidy; and our housekeepers will clean it weekly for you.

You have the opportunity for weekly bed linen laundry simply by putting your sheets out for collection each Tuesday.
