The James Cook University Cairns student lodge was a great base for our ANU masters degree course with its excellent accommodation, food and facilities. It provided a good range of venues extending from the main meeting room with its projection capacity to the various options in the court yards which were well suited for small group discussions. The staff were extremely helpful whenever we had things to sort out and ensured that we were able to make the best of the wonderful Cairns region as a stimulus for our field work examining research policy interactions in practice. Thanks again.

I have stayed there for 1 week, it was a very nice experience and like to place so much. Staff are wonderful, Hamish is a super friendly and very nice guy, even he offered us a drop to city centre. Food was wonderful, kitchen staff are very friendly and attentive as well. Nikie the chef was a lovely lady along with another lady with her in the kitchen. To sum up, wonderful place, people, food and location to uni.

Over the last 3 years living at the Cairns Student Lodge I must say I have had the best experience! A safe, warm and friendly place that is in a fantastic, convenient location. The new upgrades are the best I’ve seen in 3 years with an amazing and friendly support staff to boast! Food has great variety with a kitchen team always open for suggestions and feedback! Definitely a great choice for all prospective JCU Students alike!

Clean rooms, aircon, good showers and food, no bugs, really enjoyed staying here for nine days with all the integrated water cohort while we travelled the area. Good place for large groups to stay. Courtyards and pool area make it easy and pleasant to socialise at the end of the day. Thanks Hamish ...
