UniLodge Herston is an affordable purpose-built student accommodation community created within the refurbished towers of the heritage-listed Lady Lamington Building and located within the Herston Quarter Redevelopment, just 3. 5 km from the Brisbane CBD. Situated in a central inner-city suburb, UniLodge Herston is 1km to QUT’s Kelvin Grove campus, and a short 1. 5 km walk to Brisbane’s nightlife mecca, The Valley. This accommodation is directly adjacent to the University of Queensland (UQ) Herston Campus (including the faculty of Medicine, Dentistry, and Public Health), and is well serviced by major road networks, with the Herston bus interchange also directly across the road.

UniLodge Herston is a unique and exciting addition for students in Brisbane and provides accommodation options including single rooms, loft style rooms, and bunk shared rooms, all with complimentary superfast NBN broadband WiFi. We have also designed state-of-the-art common facilities including a Master Chef inspired kitchen, cinema, a range of common areas and games rooms, courtyards, and gymnasium.

The Lady Lamington Towers is a century-old state-listed heritage building that has been adaptively reused from its original purpose as nurses accommodation and refurbished for contemporary student accommodation. The Towers are the centrepiece of the Herston Quarter, which is a vibrant, diverse and connected community comprising world-class health infrastructure, student, commercial and residential accommodation, childcare and supporting complementary uses. The Herston Health precinct is internationally renowned, situated amongst world leading research and tertiary institutes and the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.
