Student and Share Accommodation in Cairns

Student and Share Accommodation in Cairns - live in cairnsFor those that don’t have the luxury to permanently live in Cairns, many still have to opportunity to study in Cairns, thanks to the James Cook University. Now if you are planning to live in Cairns on a temporary basis, you’re going to need accommodation.

As a past student, I understand the limitations with things like cash flow and trying to find a place to study and more importantly, feel comfortable. Yet, if you’re young and live in Cairns, you’re also probably going to want to party, because no city parties like Cairns does.

I grew up in Sydney, so that says something about what the party lifestyle is like up here. But enough about partying and sexy adventures! You’re here to find more information on accommodation to live in Cairns.

Now, I’ve given you the fire power to find the best student and share accommodation in Cairns. When you’re deciding on which place to choose to live in Cairns, just follow these simple tips.

1. Be mindful of who you stay with. Do your research and if you’ve got a feeling the person is a fanatical axe collector, you probably want to leave that be.

2. If you’re into partying, stay in town. If you want the more chilled life, live out of town. Even if you live out of town you can still get in there pretty quickly, even on public transport.

3. If you’re a student, your best bet may be the Northern Beaches. They are close enough to town to let your hair down after those big study sessions and exams. They’re also quite close to James Cook University and other Colleges located on the North side.

4. Make sure you check out that water, electricity and Internet are included in your rent. The last thing you want is to have to chip in for additional costs after moving in.
