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-fob locked door, only accessible by you (and select staff in emergencies).
  • A single bed with a pillow, 2 sheets 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.

Your choice of room .

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

Study Rooms share fully renovated, light and airy shared bathrooms, with spacious private cubicles. Shared bathrooms are cleaned by the wonderful college cleaning 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.

All rooms have their bed linen changed, their surfaces wiped down and floors vacuumed once per week by our lovely cleaning staff.

Parking and Transport .


Car parking is at a premium in our free car park. Allocation is first come first served and qualified by how long you are staying, beginning with 4th years and working back from there. Priority is given to Resident Assistants.


A secure shed is provided for bikes but it’s the owners’ responsibility to ensure both bike and shed are locked on use.

Public transport

A wide range of public transport options are conveniently located nearby, with frequent buses and CityCats just a short walk away.

Overnight guests and short stays .

If the college isn’t fully occupied, there may also be individual rooms available to hire – perfect for when a sibling comes to visit for a longer stay. For more information, see Short Stays.
