Dream of living near the university

Hello boutique living. Academie House is a smaller complex than your other student accommodation options in Canberra with only 90 fully furnished studio apartments. This creates a friendly, inclusive environment where you will make friends easily. Together you can explore nearby Lake Burley Griffin and all its scenic lakeside pathways. Pack a picnic with your study gear and hang out in the Australian National Botanic Gardens.

This property is situated in a top location, directly opposite the main pathway to the Australian National University campus. With public transport right on the doorstep to Academie House Canberra, students are able to travel comfortably and conveniently to nearby shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. On the ground floor of this building you will find a restaurant, café, hairdresser and a Healthcare facility. Across the road is a small supermarket, café and florist.
