"It was great to live in the city and take a short bus ride to JCU"

I am looking for a room sharing house with

James Cook University Students


Cairns Sharehouse offers the perfect university student accommodation in Cairns - from a few weeks, months or even your entire year! 

James Cook University has two campuses - one in Smithfield and one in the City Centre.

Cairns Sharehouse is a popular option for students who wish to enjoy the fun of inner city life - such as eating out, going to the movies or working whilst studying.

To Smithfield Campus - It is an easy 40 minute bus ride from the sharehouses to the James Cook University located 15 km outside of Cairns City surrounded by rainforest covered mountains in a quiet suburb.

To the City Campus - Located right in the centre of the CBD at 36 Shield Street, all of our sharehouses are located an easy 15-20 minute walk.

Rent out a private room in our student apartments and enjoying sharing with students from around the world and exploring Cairns together.

We provide everything, including all bills and bed linen (and even a cleaner and free wifi!) in our low special JCU student rate.

We are also happy to chat to your parents to answer any questions they may have before you book with us to reassure them that although you are living independently, we are very much involved in daily life in the sharehouse and are available 24 hours per day to offer help and support.

Starting university for the first time can be daunting enough, and our inner city sharehouses are designed to make the move very easy and enjoyable.
