Convenient Location

Live your best life in Kangaroo Point

Student Living - Shafston offers student accommodation in Brisbane in the fantastic riverside setting of Kangaroo Point. This central suburb is close to the Queensland University of Technology, the city and The Gabba: Brisbane’s iconic sports stadium. You’ll also find kilometres of riverside pathways nearby – perfect for cycling, walking and running.

The property boasts plenty of local public transport options, including free transport to the city and South Bank via the CityHopper ferry. You’ll also find shops and restaurants on your doorstep, including a ground floor café for that early morning coffee fix.

Each apartment at Student Living - Shaftston is fully self-contained and the on-site facilities, for exclusive access by residents, are designed to help you study and socialise. 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. Each apartment has its own bathroom and kitchenette and their layout makes all rooms suitable for individuals, couples or friends wishing to share.
