Welcome To James Cook University
Currently you can only apply for a Semester 2 - 2019 contract term.
Applications for 2020 will open in Early August for consideration.
This application portal is for JCU students looking for on-campus accommodation in Townsville or Cairns. Click here to start your application. Returning residents DO NOT use this portal. Please contact your residence directly for further instruction.
Please click here if you are looking for accommodation at JCU Mackay.
Please click here if you are looking for short term accommodation for block mode study or for early arrival.
A $55 fee is required for your application to live on-campus. Please do not start an application if you do not intend to pay the fee at this stage. There is no advantage to starting it and not completing it. Your application will be processed from the date it is received, not the date it is started.
Once you have paid the application fee please ensure that you "submit" your application. If you have any issues with this stage please contact JCU Accommodation.
We will communicate with you about your housing via e-mail. If you do not respond to our emails within the key dates listed your offer will be withdrawn and application canceled.
Please use an email address that you will have access to during December/January.
Often school email addresses are closed when you are no longer a school student. Probably don't use this email address.
Are you going away before Uni starts? Please use an email address that will be accessed during this time (maybe your parents?)
You are unable to alter your application once it has been received. If you wish to change your preference or add information please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will update it for you.
For further information please contact JCU Accommodation Services email@example.com or phone +61 7 4781 3291
