Get ready for new JCU student accommodation complex!
Medical students starting programs at James Cook University Townsville campus will have a new accommodation option for 2022.
The university has just commenced the construction of a $54-million complex that is set to open for students in semester 1-2022. This 10,000 m2 building will house more than 400 students, featuring study bedrooms in group share accommodation, high-quality communal facilities, and a centralized, self-catered kitchen and dining area.
“The new student accommodation complex is a crucial element of the renewal of the Townsville campus and is the first construction project in TropiQ, Townsville’s Tropical Intelligence & Health Precinct,” said Deputy Vice Chancellor for Services and Resources, Tricia Brand.
$46 million of this project has come from the Federal Government’s Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility, while James Cook University contributed the remaining $8 million. It’s a major project in the tropical town of Townsville and will be a welcome home to students looking for contemporary and affordable on-campus living arrangements.
